Technische Universität München (TUM)
After studying engineering in Italy, at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, Professor Gagliardi received his doctorate in physics from the University of Paderborn in 2007 under the supervision of Professor Thomas Frauenheim. He then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at BCCMS (Bremen Center for Computational Material Science). Subsequently (2008) he moved back to Rome where he worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Professor Aldo Di Carlo. In January 2014 he was appointed tenure track assistant professor for simulation of nanosystems for energy conversion at TUM.
Manuel Gößwein was born in Regensburg, Germany, in 1993. He graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) in Electrical Engineering from University of Applied Sciences Regensburg (OTH Regensburg) in 2017. Subsequently, he received a Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Technical University of Munich (TUM) in 2020. Currently, he is working as a PhD student at the chair „Simulation of Nanosystems for Energy Conversion“ (SNE) at TUM. His research focuses on the theoretical investigation and optimization of electrochemical and biolectronic systems for energy conversion by means of simulation. In this context, he is developing and implementing a kinetic Monte-Carlo model for the charge transport at the organic-aqueous electrolyte interface. In his rare free time, he likes doing sports (running and calisthenics) or dealing with classical philology, philosophy or history.
