Alessandro Cossard (AC) is a Ph.D. student at the Chemistry Department of Turin, in the Theoretical Chemistry group, as a software developer for the CRYSTAL code (http://www.crystal.unito.it/index.php, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crystal_(software)). His project is about implementing some new computational tools into CRYSTAL in order to study in deep some branches of quantum chemistry. In particular, he is implementing code for extending the Bader analysis to f and g-orbitals.
Applied Research Lagrange Scholarship. AC worked one year at ISI Foundation in Turin (https://www.isi.it/en/home) on a project under the name “Data for Social Good. In particular, AC analyzed big data from Social Network in order to follow the development of the anti-vaccination movement in Italy. The tutors of this work were Yelena Mejova, Gianmarco De Francisci Morales, Daniela Paolotti, Michele Starnini, and Kyriaki Kalimeri.
Scholarship at the Chemistry Department at the University of Turin in the Theoretical Chemistry group. AC developed some computational models for periodic systems into the CRYSTAL code in the framework of the Density Functional Theory. The tutor of this project was Prof. Civalleri Bartolomeo.
At the sessions of December 2018 and January 2019, AC taught the basis of Network Theory and how to use the Gephi software to build and visualize complex networks (show certificate, show certificate)
At the session of July 2019, AC taught both the previous course about network and a course named Python for Data Science in which he taught the basics of Machine Learning and how to build a simple AI in Python (show certificate)
Full Teacher and department coordinator of the Integrate Science Subject (Physics) at the Scholastic Institution of Technical Education Innocenzo Manzetti in the city of Aosta (show certificate)
