Emanuele was born in Rome on 7th January 1982. He graduated under the supersivion of Prof. Gianturco in 2006 at "Sapienza" University of Rome, and then got the PhD in the same group in 2009, with a thesis entitled "Chemical solutions in a quantum solvent: a study of doped helium clusters", using quantum Monte Carlo methods. He got a post-doc position at the University of L'Aquila in 2010-2014 within the ERC project "MultiscaleChemBio" by Prof. Guidoni, working on development and application of quantum Monte Carlo methods for the electronic structure of molecules of biological interest. He spent two years (2014-2016) as a post-doc at Sorbonne University in Paris (supervised by Eleonora Luppi and Julien Toulouse) working on theoretical time-resolved approaches to investigate highly nonlinear optical processes, as high-harmonic generation, in atoms and molecules interacting with intense laser fields. In late 2016 Emanuele joined the group of Prof. Corni (CNR in Modena and University of Padova), PI of the ERC project 'TAME-Plasmons', focusing on the role of coherence and plasmonic effects in the control of molecular optical properties occurring at ultrafast scale. He got a RTDA position in Padova in August 2018.

He was Assistant Professor of Physical Chemistry at the Department of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences of University of Trieste in 2018-2021.

Since  December 2021, Emanuele is Associate Professor of Physical Chemistry at the Department of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences of University of Trieste. 

He was the PI of several national and European (PRACE and DECI) projects on high-performance computing for computational chemistry. He is currently the PI of the European PRACE Project "NANOMOLEL - Antenna-reactor nanostructures for electron injection in molecules" awarded with 30,400,000 core hours on Supercomputer in Bavaria (SuperMUC).
