Stefano Fabris is Researcher at the Istituto Officina dei Materiali (IOM), Trieste, Italy, of the National Research Council (CNR) and an Associate Staff Member at the Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA), Trieste, Italy. He leads the Unit of Theory and Simulation of Nanostructured Materials of the IOM, and he is the Coordinator of the Theory Group of the Elettra synchrotron radiation laboratory in Trieste, Italy. He teaches postgraduate courses at the Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA) and at the University of Trieste, Trieste, Italy. Fabris received a degree in materials science and engineering from the University of Trieste in 1998 and a Ph.D. degree at the Queen's University of Belfast, Belfast, UK, in 2000. He was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship at the Max Planck Institute für Metallforschung, Stuttgart, Germany from 2000 to 2003. In 2003, Fabris obtained a Tenure Track Position at the DEMOCRITOS Simulation Center of the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica della Materia and was tenured in 2008. His main research interests are computational materials science, materials and processes for energy conversion and storage, metal-oxides nanostructures for homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, organic and metal-organic molecular assemblies at surfaces, physics and chemistry of graphene, and theoretical spectroscopy. Since 2000, he published more than 50 papers in international refereed journal with about 2500 citations (H-index 19) and has given more than 30 invited talks, seminars, and lectures at international conferences, schools, workshops, and research institutions.
