​​​​Simone Sturniolo has a MSc in Materials Engineering and a PhD in Physics, with a thesis on the applications of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance to the dynamics of polymers. Now he works for the CCP for NMR Crystallography, developing tools and methods to bridge the NMR community with the computational one. He actively develops and maintains, among the others, the visualization software MagresView and the Python library Soprano. He also has an interest in the foundations of quantum mechanics and in nuclear quantum effects, and has worked on developing the Many Interacting Worlds approach, a new algorithm to implement them in DFT simulations.​
