Linda graduated in physics at the University of Bari in Italy in 2003. She obtained her PhD in 2008 at the University of Liverpool, where she worked in the Surface Science Research Centre on DFT calculations and STM simulations of organic molecules on surfaces. Linda then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in Spain (2008-2014), where she focused on the theory of electron transport through molecular junctions. Linda moved to Trinity College Dublin in 2015.
Linda is working on quantum-mechanical simulations of novel materials which are relevant for heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR), focusing on their mechanical, thermal and interface properties.
