Benedetta Mennucci was awarded her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Pisa in 1999, working under the supervision of Prof. Jacopo Tomasi, with a thesis entitled “Theoretical Models and Computational Applications of Molecular Phenomena Involving the Environment Effect”.
Assistant professor of Physical Chemistry at the department of Chemistry of the University of Pisa from 1998, she was appointed Associate (2002) and the Full (2012) professor at the same department. From 2010 to 2013, she served as an adjunct professor at the Center for Theoretical and Computational Chemistry of the University of Tromsø, Norway.
During the last ten years, she acted as President of the PhD School in Chemical and Material Sciences and President of the Bachelor and Master courses in Chemistry for the Department of Chemistry of the University of Pisa. In the period 2014-2016 she acted as President of the Theoretical and Computational Chemistry Division of the Italian Chemical Society.
She is member of the editorial advisory board of Chemical Reviews and the Journal of Chemical Theory and Computation (American Chemical Society) and Cell Reports Physical Chemistry (CellPress). She is Senior Editor of the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters (American Chemical Society).
She is a member of the Board of the World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists (WATOC) and has been appointed a member of the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Science (IAQMS).
Her research interests focus on the modeling of complex systems and their interaction with light, with a particular focus on solvated systems and on chromophores embedded in biological macromolecules. She has been awarded numerous national and international research grants, including two grants from the European Research Council (ERC StG ENLIGHT and ERC AdG LIFETimeS).
She authored or co-authored more than 300 papers, that have been cited more than 37000 times (h-index 69). Among the papers she authored, 6 are cited more than 1000 times.
