Riccardo Chelli received a degree in chemistry at the University of Firenze (Italy, 1996 ). He was raised to the Department of Chemistry of the University of Firenze (1997). He received a Ph.D. degree in chemistry from the University of Firenze (2000), a fellowship with the Department of Energy Engineering of the University of Firenze for a research on a physicomathematical model to study the wax deposition in a boundary layer for a waxy crude oil flowing in a pipe in turbulent regime (2000), a postdoctoral fellowship with the University of California, Irvine (USA) (Research Group of the Professor Shaul Mukamel, 2004), a fellowship with the International Consortium for Advanced Design of Firenze for developing a FORTRAN parallel code for computational fluid dynamics (2005), a postdoctoral position at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Firenze (2000–2009), and a permanent researcher position at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Firenze (since 2009). His scientific interest is addressed to the study of principles and methodologies in the framework of statistical mechanics at the molecular level. In particular, it focuses on (i) theoretical aspects of nonequilibrium thermodynamics, (ii) development of numerical schemes for the phase-space sampling and the estimate of thermodynamical properties via computer simulations, (iii) applications of the statistical mechanics to systems of biophysical and biochemical interest, (vi) aspects regarding the correlation between dynamic-structural properties and optical activity of biomolecules and simple liquids, with special attention to the development of models for the interpretation and/or the prediction of linear and nonlinear infrared measurements;www.chim.unifi.it:/u/chelli.
