Research Interests

  • Theory of spin glasses, complexity and structure of metastable states
  • Out of equilibrium dynamics, aging, fluctuation dissipation relations, effective temperatures interpretation
  • Null models for real world networks, entropy measures for network ensembles and characterization of distances 
  • Graph dynamics and generation of complex network ensembles
  • Stochastic processes and critical phenomena on finitely connected random graphs (Ising models, Kuramoto oscillators, percolation)
