I studied Statistical Physics, and I work in the field of Complex Networks. I got my degree in 1992 in Rome (La Sapienza), my PhD in 1996 in Trieste (SISSA). After Postdocs in Manchester and Cambridge I became firstly "Research Assistant" in INFM and secondly "Primo Ricercatore" at ISC-CNR where I am still working with many friends and colleagues.

Presently I am Full Professor of Physics at IMT Lucca, and a LIMS Fellow.

From 2018 I am the President of the Complex Systems Society

From 2016 I am in the board of the SNP Division of European Physical Society

Complex Networks are one of the most fascinating contemporary field of research. 

With the term Scale-Invariance we indicate various properties. Self-similarity (spatial scale-invariance), avalanche dynamics (temporal scale-invariance) and complex networks (topological scale-invariance)

Plants are able of amazing sensing capabilities, each single root apex being able to  simultaneously and continuously monitor at least five chemical and physical parameters.
