Unfolding the dynamics of creativity, novelties and innovation
|4 years ago|
I was trained as a theoretical physicist and I have worked mainly in statistical mechanics of disordered systems, with particular emphasis on spin-glasses, structural glasses and supercooled liquids. I while ago I also did some work in multi-agents modelling (econophysics).
More recently, I started working on collective behaviour in biological systems, trying to adopt an interdisciplinary approach that uses methods from statistical physics to solve biological and ethological problems. In this second life of mine, I mainly work on collecting and analyzing empirical data about bird flocks and insect swarms.
We are currently also starting two new projects on stem cell collective motion and on malaria mosquitoes swarming.

My office is at the CNR building in Via dei Taurini 19, Rome (few meters from the Sapienza campus). I am at the 4th floor, room 411. Bring an ID to get the badge at the entrance.
These web articles explain my research on simple terms.
