Oriol Artime
   

Trained as a physicist at Univ. of Barcelona, I moved to IFISC (Mallorca) to pursue a PhD on complex systems. I use tools from network theory, statistical physics and stochastic processes to better understand complex systems in general, and models of social dynamics in particular.

      Giacomo Barzon
   

I got my MSc in Physics of Data at the University of Padova and I am currently pursuing a PhD in Neuroscience at the Padova Neuroscience Center. My main interests regard the study of the brain as an emblematic empirical complex system, using network structure and biologically inspired models of neural dynamics to investigate brain criticality and controllability, thanks to computational simulations and analytical tools mostly from statistical mechanics.

      Vittoria Bettio
   

I'm currently finishing my bachelors degree in physics at UniPD. Interested in complex systems, I’m fascinated how these can be applied to many systems that regards humanity and its interactions. As my university experience has been heavily influenced by the recent pandemic, it was natural for me to further investigate how complex systems can help us in understanding epidemiology.

Francesco Zambelli
   

I'm an undergraduate student of Physics in Unipd, currently attending the Master in Physics of data, a newborn course in which the study pf physics, and in particular of complex systems in my case, is supported by a deep use of machine learning tools. I'm interested in statistical mechanics and in general the role of statistics in the study of science.

      Pavitra Batra
   

I am an undergraduate student in Physics at the Indian Institute for Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune. I am interested in statistical mechanics and its applications in problems associated with complex social, economic, or biological systems. When I'm not studying, I enjoy dabbling in graphic designing and music production.
