Bio
Dr. Stefano Costanzi is an Associate Professor of Chemistry at American University, in Washington DC, with an educational background in both the chemical sciences and international affairs. Dr. Costanzi's teaching interests mainly focus on the countering of chemical weapons and weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

His traditional research interests revolve around the computational study of the interactions between chemicals and living organisms. Importantly, Dr. Costanzi’s research significantly contributed to defining and expanding the scope of applicability of computational modeling to the study of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), key targets for many of the chemicals that modulate the functions of the human body.

More recently, he also became interested in the analysis of gaps in current policies and practices that allow WMD proliferation and the conceptualization of ways to address them. Additionally, he is interested in raising awareness on CBRN issues.
