Characterization of structural, dynamic and phase properties of solids and soft matter by means of solid-state and liquid-state NMR spectroscopy. To this aim the main research interests are the applications of low- and high-resolution experiments for the study of the main nuclear properties and analysis of the results by combining several experiments on different nuclear species. A particular interest is the study of dynamic processes by combining NMR relaxometry and spectroscopy, and research of global models able to interpret all the different experiments. The substances of interest range from hard matter, in particular with applications in the pharmaceutical field but in material science, to soft matter (thermotropic and lyotropic liquid crystals, plastic crystals and soft phases of biological interest).
