Andrea Ferretti
Daniele Varsano

Andrea Ferretti is senior researcher at CNR-NANO, Modena, Italy.
He works in the field of condensed-matter and solid-state physics, performing ab initio simulations at the level of DFT and many-body perturbation theory. Current research interests focus on the first principle study of structural, electronic, and optical properties of
organic semiconductors and hybrid interfaces, and 2D materials.
He is author of more than 60 scientific publications on international peer-reviewed journals and developer of scientific software (including YAMBO, and QUANTUM ESPRESSO).
Currently Andrea Ferretti is chair of the MaX executive committee.

Dr. Daniele Varsano is researcher at CNR-NANO, Modena, Italy. His main research interests are in first principle calculations of excited sates in the field of  low dimensional systems,  materials for energy conversion and biophysics.
He is author of 55 publications in international peer reviewed scientific journals and  developer of the scientific software Yambo.
He is WP leader for training and education for the Center of Excellence MaX Materials Design at the Exascale and has organised several hands-on schools on the Yambo usage in HPC environments.
