Marco Milanesio Curriculum vitae - September, 30th 2005

Marco Milanesio was born in 1971 in Savigliano (CN), Italy.
Graduate in Chemistry in 1996 at the Faculty of Science of the University of Torino with prof. Davide Viterbo. Ph.D in Chemistry in 2000 at the Faculty of Science of the University of Torino with prof. Davide Viterbo.
Post doctoral position in 2001 (with a bursary from the "G. Donegani" foundation). Since October 2001 he has got a permanent position as researcher at the Faculty of Science of the University of Piemonte Orientale "Amedeo Avogadro".
During the 1st AIC-SILS joint congress (Trieste, July 2003) was awarded with the "young researcher in crystallography" price.
The research activity is carried out in the field of X-Ray crystallography and Theoretical Calculations. A summary of the main works can be found at the page "highlight" and in the brief  presentation available clicking here..
Physical chemistry, theory and practice of powder and single crystal X-ray diffraction, molecular modeling and data mining (Cambridge Structural Database, Protein Data Bank, Inorganic Structural database).
Author of 36 papers on international journals and author or co-author of more than 30 comunications to national and international congresses.
