Prof. Stoll grew up in South Tyrol in Italy. He received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from ETH Zurich and worked as a postdoc at University of California Davis. His research group at the University of Washington is focused on developing novel experimental and computational methods in advanced Electron Paramagnetic Resonance spectroscopy for a range of applications: (1) His lab uses DEER spectroscopy to study protein conformational landscapes, in order to understand how protein dynamics and flexibility affect function. (2) His lab utilizes coherent pulse EPR to study the fundamental dynamic behaviour of molecular spin qubits, a potential platform for quantum sensing. His lab is also developing and advancing EasySpin, the worldwide standard simulation software for EPR spectroscopy. He is the recipient of a number awards, including an NSF CAREER award. He is a Cottrell Scholar and a AAAS Fellow. In this spare time, he spends time with his family, plays the flute and enjoys hiking, trail running and skiing.
