Alberto Debernardi has mainly developed his professional experience within the framework of density functional theory. In March 1990 he took the degree dottore in Fisica, Università degli Studi di Pavia, full marks "cum laude", with a thesis on Density functional theory of Wigner crystallization in two dimensions. From February first, 1992 to January 31, 1993: adempimento obblighi di leva (Military/Civil Service). In October 1993, he took the degree Magister Philosophiae, SISSA Trieste, with a thesis on Anharmonic effects in crystals from density functional perturbation theory. In 1995 he took the PhD at the SISSA (Trieste) presenting a new method to study the anharmonic effects in crystals from density functional perturbation theory; he applied his method to compute the phonon lifetime of semiconductors (title of PhD thesis: Anharmonic properties of semiconductors from density functional perturbation theory). In 2001, he took the Degree Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches, at the Strasbourg University. After a postdoctoral experience at the MPI-Stuttgart were he collaborated with Cardona and Parrinello groups on vibrational properties of semiconductors and at the IPCMS of Strasbourg were he computed ab initio magneto optical and thermodynamics properties of metals, he was research associate (ricercatore) at INFM, at Trieste University/SISSA (2001-2004) where he studied by first principles magnetic semiconductors, interfaces and magnetic heterostructures. During the July 2002 and 2003 he was invited professor at the Tours University. Since summer 2004, he is senior researcher (primo ricercatore) at MDM laboratory, CNR-IMM, uos Agrate Brianza, he has been responsible of several national super computing projects. He has been principal investigator of the project "Oxides for Spin Electronic Applications" (OSEA) financed by Cariplo foundation (2010-2013). He has a large experience in the numerical simulation in condensed matter physics and his results are presented in more than 60 publications having over than thousand citations in scientific literature. His present research interests include high dielectric oxides, quantum computation, diluted magnetic semiconductors, nano-electronics, spintronics, solotronics, and topological insulators.
