My research activity is directed towards exploiting hitherto unexplored foundations of quantum control methods for tailoring spin evolutions in order to develop novel technologies and applications in the areas of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) and imaging (MRI). The main topic of my publications is about the spin dynamics of open quantum systems interacting with environments focusing on the characterization of the system dynamics and how it is modified by the environment (decoherence and dissipation). At the practical level, using both NMR experiments and theoretical tools, I am exploiting that by monitoring the changes on the system due to the environmental effects, one can sense the environment for characterizing physical, chemical, biological and medical processes to lead to new applications and technologies in magnetic resonance. At the fundamental level, the understanding and control of quantum interference phenomena, and in particular the propagation of spin excitations can improve our comprehension and control of quantum systems, their decoherence and irreversible processes.
