Physicist studying integrated real-world Complex Systems (biological, socio-technical and engineering networks) and their complex dynamics, to understand how multiplexity and interdependencies lead to emergent collective phenomena and resilience to perturbations.

Resilience against climate change: we analyze how human-made networks (power grids, transport and communication systems) can adapt to climate change. How can we enhance their robustness against the risk of systemic collapse?
Theoretical advance on the representation of complex networks for modeling empirical complex systems, identifying central/influential units and determine the underlying meso-scale organization.
Single and coupled dynamics on multilayer networks for modeling information/awareness propagation, complex contagion, epidemics spreading, consensus mechanisms. Our goal is to better understand robustness, resilience and emergence of collective phenomena in complex networked systems.
Information theory is intimately realted to statistical physics, playing a key role in data science and a variety of applications. We develop theoretical and analytical tools to quantify how complex networks produce and process information, to reduce their dimensionality.
Network geometry is rapidly gaining attention for providing a suitable framework for the analysis of interacting systems. We focus on the application of network diffusion maps to better understand the dynamics of spreading processes and to provide coarse-grained representation of networkd systems.
Between June and July we obtained funding by Italian MUR with a PRIN (co-PI), a PRIN PNRR (PI) and the prestigious FIS (PI), for a total of 1.3 million euros.
Statistical inference links data and theory in network science
We obtained a 1 million dollars funding by the Human Frontier Science Program, in collaboration with U. Ben Gurion (Israel) and U. Liverpool (UK)
