Welcome to my home page. I keep it to present a few information about myself and the activities in which I am involved, for poeple who might share similar scientific interests

I also keep here a list of pointers to Internet resources which I found useful for each of the specific fields in which I am involved. I hope that some of them could be useful also to you. I will appreciate your comments and suggestions.

Please be warned that I should probably update my picture on this page: my hairs are currently much greyer than when I first drew this homepage ;-)
