Mauro Del Ben, PhD in Chemistry from the University of Zurich, since 2018 Research Scientist at the Computational Research Division LBNL, member of the Center for Computational Study of Excited-State Phenomena in Energy Materials (C2SEPEM). His research is focused on the development of new computational and mathematical methods for first principle simulations of ground and excited state phenomena in chemistry and materials, with a particular focus in the development of high performance computing algorithms for large scale massively parallel applications, including hybrid CPU-GPU architectures.
