Dr. Annarita Laricchiuta
Graduated in Chemistry (1997) and PhD in Environmental Sciences (2000) at the University of Bari, she is a Researcher at the Italian National Research Council since 2001. Her research activity is focussed on the theoretical calculation, with simplified approaches, of dynamical data relevant to the kinetic modelling of plasmas, investigating the role of excited states (vibrational and electronic) of target molecules in collisional processes, and on the derivation of elastic transport and resonant charge-exchange cross sections for transport properties of plasmas. Co-author of 107 papers in JCR journals, of many communications at international conferences and of two books of the Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics. Co-editor of the multi-author book Hypersonic Meteoroid Entry Physics IOP Series in Plasma Physics (2019).
