RESEARCH INTERESTS

Dr. Antonio Benedetto is a dedicated scientist whose activity has until now been devoted mainly to the application of neutron scattering techniques and molecular dynamics simulations to characterize both structural and dynamical properties of systems of biological interest. The conceptual focus of the scientific interests of Dr. A. Benedetto has been represented by the investigation of hydrogen-bonding networks at the interface between water and organic molecules. He is interested, in particular, in understanding both the structure-dynamics-function relationship and the role of hydrogen bonds in bio-systems, and how they affect their dynamics and self-assembly properties. The results of his research have been published in different papers, and have been presented in different conferences and meetings.
