Prof. Michele Ceriotti

Tenure Track Assistant Professor

Michele Ceriotti received his Ph.D. in Physics from ETH Zürich.  He spent three years in Oxford as a Junior Research Fellow at Merton College, funded from a Royal Society Newton Fellowship and a Marie Curie Fellowship. Since 2013 he
works as an assistant professor at the Institute of Materials at EPFL, leading the laboratory for Computational Science and Modeling. His research interests focus on the development of methods for molecular dynamics and quantum simulations of hydrogen-bonded  materials, machine-learning study of complex systems at the atomistic level, and on
their application to problems in chemistry and materials science. He has been awarded the IBM Research Forschungspreis in 2010, the Volker Heine Young Investigator Award in 2013, an ERC Starting Grant in 2016, and the IUPAP C10 Young Scientist Prize in 2018.

Research Area

Prof. Ceriotti's research focuses on the development of methods for molecular dynamics and the simulation of complex problems at the atomistic level, and to their application to problems in chemistry and materials science. The focus is in particular on the statistical mechanics of materials, including the simulation of the quantum properties of light nuclei by means of path integral techniques and colored-noise Langevin dynamics, the study of structural complexity by means of non-linear dimensionality reduction techniques and of rare events by accelerated sampling.
