Luca Argenti


Dr. Argenti earned his undergraduate degree in chemistry in 2001 from the University of Pisa (Italy, EU), and his Ph.D. in chemistry in 2008, from the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa, with a thesis in theoretical atomic physics. He was Postdoctoral Fellow at Stockholm University (Sweden, EU) between 2009 and 2010, and at the Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain, EU) between 2010 and 2016. He began as Assistant Professor at UCF in 2016. 

Research Interest

Theoretical description of the electronic continuum of atoms and molecules, with particular reference to the reconstruction and control of the photoionisation dynamics triggered in matter by attosecond light pulses.
