Dr. Alessandro Lunghi

Assistant Professor (Physics)


After a BSc and a MSc in Chemistry, Alessandro was awarded a PhD from the University of Florence, Italy, in 2016. He then moved to the School of Physics at Trinity College Dublin, where he began his postdoc activity in the group of Prof. Sanvito. His research interests lie at the boundary between spin relaxation theory, quantum science, and machine learning for new materials design. In 2020 he was awarded the prestigious ERC Starting Grant to pursue his own research vision. Alessandro is now leading a growing research group that works in the development of artificial intelligence methods for the design of new magnetic molecules for quantum technologies. Since February 2021 he holds the positions of Assistant Professor in Physics at Trinity College Dublin and of Funded Investigator at the Amber Research Centre.
