Dr Silvia Imberti's research is in in the field of hydrogen-bonded liquids, with a focus on the microscopic structure of aqueous solutions.

Problems of interest in the area of bulk liquids exist in the hydration structure of electrolytes in solution, the structuring of water in the presence of charged solutes, the solvation structure of organic molecules as such and as a model for biological systems, the solvation of small bio-molecules, hydrophobic hydration.

These studies provide a foundation in several fields varying from the structure of functional proteins, to the nucleation of clouds and the influence of agricultural pollution on climate change.

Another angle is explored when the liquid under study is under microscopic confinement or when exploring dramatic temperatures regimes.

Scientific issues addressed include the structure and dynamics of water under hydrophilic confinement at room temperature and in the supercooled regime, the study of emulsified supercooled water, momentum distribution of supercritical water (high temperature and high pressure).
