  Associate Professor
Professor Marco Buongiorno Nardelli received his PhD from the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA/ISAS) in Trieste (Italy) in 1993 after graduating summa cum laude from the University of Rome "La Sapienza" in 1989. After a few years as post-doctoral associate, in 2001 he joined the faculty of the Department of Physics at NC State as the first joint faculty appointment with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. His research activities are focused on the application of ab initio electronic structure techniques to the theoretical study of important aspects of the physics of materials. He is well known and internationally recognized for his groundbreaking work on the physical and electronic properties of carbon nanotubes, his contribution to the first principles theory of electronic transport in nanostructures and his studies of the physics of surfaces and interfaces. His research has been highlighted on numerous popular press articles and news services. Educated as both a musician and a physicist, he holds a BM in Music Theory and Composition from the Conservatorio "Luigi Cherubini" in Florence, Italy, studied flute with Oro and Gian-Luca Petrucci in Rome and composition with Riccardo Giagni (Rome), Lyda di Cuffa (Florence) and Alan Shockley (UNC-Chapel Hill). As a performer he has recorded for the Italian National Radio and Television (RAI) and has released various CD's with the world music group Kolaj and the Arabic-jazz-fusion ensemble Jaafar. His compositions have been premiered by, among others, the Raleigh Civic Chamber Orchestra and Chicago's ACM ensemble.
