The Pollice Research Group is committed to create an inclusive research environment where members feel safe and respected. We believe that diversity is an intrinsic and important part of the academic community and, therefore, we appreciate differences in backgrounds, experiences and perspectives, and facilitate them to help everyone in our team to reach their full potential in both scientific and non-scientific matters.
Our research interests rest on four main pillars. Our primary target is the design of molecular catalysts for organic reactions with the help of computers. To realize that, we combine the simulation of chemical reactions with lab automation for high-throughput experiments and artificial molecular design algorithms. This allows us to incorporate data-driven algorithms directly into our workflow allowing us to accelerate the discovery process.
