Modeling, Theory and Computation

Our research focuses on: 1. the theoretical and computational study of systems with many interacting constituents, from glasses and spin glasses to soft and biological matter; 2. the physics of random lasing materials; 3. nonlinear, turbulent and complex flows; 4. the quantitative and computational analysis of biological systems, from single-molecules to biological networks and system-level properties.
In addition, we are interested in the development of efficient algorithms for inference and big data analysis.

Complex Flows And Nonlinear Time Analysis

The experimental study of nonlinear and complex systems relies on the design of specific advanced data analysis tools, which need to be able to identify properties of the dynamics…

Computational Biology

Theoretical methods and mathematical modeling can be applied to investigate complex physical systems that are found in biological organisms. Computer simulations are a common tool to analyze the interactions…

Photonics in Random Media

In recent years, random lasing materials (e.g. powders, porous media, precipitates in solution, or photonic crystals with impurities) have been extensively studied…

Scientific Computing & Big Data

We exploit parallel computing on single and multi Graphic Processing Units (GPU’s) for several problems. In particular, we develop optimised parallel codes for continuous…

Statistical Mechanics

We study disordered and frustrated systems such as spin-glasses, structural glasses and random photonics models by means of advanced methods in statistical mechanical of disordered…

Turbulence in Plasmas

Turbulence is an ubiquitous phenomenon that can be observed on a huge range of scales, from galaxy clusters down to micro- and nano-fluidics. It is observed mostly in neutral flows…
