Welcome to the Galli Group
The Institute for Molecular Engineering, the University of Chicago
We develop and use theoretical and computational methods to understand, predict, and engineer material properties from first principles.
We investigate solids, liquids, and nanostructures in addition to physical and chemical processes relevant to solar energy conversion, water resources, and quantum information technologies.

- Surface chemistry and buried interfaces in all-inorganic nanocrystalline solids (Nat. Nano 2018)
- Ab initio spectroscopy and ionic conductivity of water under Earth mantle conditions (PNAS 2018)
