Luca Argenti earned his undergraduate degree in chemistry in 2001 from the University of Pisa (Italy, EU), and his PhD degree in chemistry in 2008, from the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa, with a thesis on theoretical methods for resonant atomic photoionization, under the direction of Prof. Roberto Moccia. In 2009 he joined the department of Physics at Stockholm University (Sweden, EU), with a post-doctoral research position under the direction of Prof. Eva Lindroth, to develop the theory of time-resolved attosecond processes in atoms. In August 2010, Dr. Argenti joined the group of Prof. Fernando Martín at the Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain, EU), where he further developed new theoretical and numerical methods for atomic and molecular attosecond interferometric spectroscopies, as well as for high-resolution molecular photoelectron spectroscopies. During this time, he directed one master and two PhD thesis, one of which has been defended in December 2015. In 2016 he joined UCF as assistant professor with a joint appointment at the Department of Physics and at CREOL. Dr. Argenti has authored several peer reviewed papers, some of which in high-impact journals such as Physical Review Letters, Nature, and Nature Communication.
