Giovanni Alberto Cesare Ummarino
Giovanni Alberto Cesare Ummarino was born in Turin, April 25th, 1965 and is a Research Assistant in the Physics Department of Politecnico di Torino since 2004. He started working on general relativity and after on the magnetic properties of the condensed matter. From many years, his research, mainly theoretical, is focused on superconductivity and in particular, but not only, on possible generalizations and solution of Eliashberg equations. This formalism has been used in the study of cuprates, magnesium diboride, fullerenes, graphite intercalation compounds, and borocarbides. At present, his research deals with Fe-based superconductors and Pu- and Np-based heavy-fermion intermetallic superconductors. Finally, he will study, in a theoretical way, the field-effect, that is, the possibility of controlling and tuning the properties of a large class of materials (semiconductors, superconductors, and metals) by means of intense electric fields. He also took part in 10 national research projects, collaborate with numerous international working groups in Russia, Germany, and Switzerland, and is coauthor of 97 papers published in international journals. From 2007, he is a Captain of the Engineers Corps in the Selected Reserve of Italian Army.
