See older news
Hi! I am a Research Assistant Professor (since January 2015) at Northeastern University (Boston, MA) in the Center of Complex Network Research (CCNR), the research group of Prof. László Barabási, where I work on the characterization of the large-scale structure of complex networks. I arrived at the CCNR in April 2012 as a JSMF Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Before moving to Boston, I was a PhD student in Physics at the University of Catania, where I was part of the Complex Systems Lab and of the ATP group. My research focused on the application of methods of statistical physics and information theory for the modelling and analysis of complex networks. Beyond a PhD in Physics (February 2012), I also received a Laurea Magistrale in Theoretical Physics (equivalent to a MSc) from the University of Catania, and a Diploma degree from Scuola Superiore di Catania. Also, I have been a student at the Complex Systems Summer School at the Santa Fe Institute, and a visiting research scholar at the BIFI, Queen Mary University, Imperial College, and at the Medical University of Vienna.
