Pedro Derosa acts as an Associate Professor in a joint position between Louisiana Tech University, Ruston, LA, USA and Grambling State University, Grambling, LA, USA. His undergraduate degree is Licenciado in physics which is equal to B.S. degree plus an M.S. degree in physics obtained from the National University of Cordoba, Cordoba, Argentina. Derosa received also a Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Cordoba. He conducted postdoctoral research at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC, USA, and became a Joint Faculty between Louisiana Tech University, USA, and Grambling State University, USA, in 2004. His group main interest includes the multiscale modeling of organic conductors and nanocomposites. Among the tools used by Derosa is density functional theory and semiempirical methods for atomic modeling and green functions for electron transport studies. Another area of his research is diffusion at the nanoscale, particularly molecular diffusion in nanotubes. This area has applications in drug delivery and anticorrosion additives among others. Derosa received, in 2010, the Larson Professorship number 1 from Louisiana Tech University, USA.
