Dr. Derosa undergraduate degree is Licenciado in Physics and equates to a B.S. plus
a M.S. in physics and was obtained from the National University of Córdoba
in Argentina. He also has a PhD in
Physics from the University of Córdoba.
He conducted postdoctoral research at the University of South
Carolina and became a Joint Faculty between Louisiana Tech University and
Grambling State University in 2004.
group main interest is the multiscale modeling of
A hopping model is used to describe
conductivity in polymer but parameters necessary at this scale are obtained
from calculations at smaller scales.
He is currently extending his research into nanocomposites.
Another area of research is
diffusion at the nanoscale, particularly
molecular diffusion in nanotubes, this research has
applications in drug delivery and anticorrosion additive among others.
