NETWORKS Research Unit
Fabio Saracco is Assistant Professor since October 2015, when he joined the NETWORKS research unit at IMT, with Guido Caldarelli. He was born in 1985 in Lucca; in 2009 he got the Master's Degree in Theoretical Physics at the University of Florence, with a thesis on Cosmological perturbations. In 2013 he obtained his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics (String Theory) at the University of Milano Bicocca with a thesis with Alessandro Tomasiello (INFN, Milano Bicocca department). In 2013 he took an interest in the Complex Systems research: at the Institute for Complex Systems (ISC-CNR, Sapienza Department, Rome), he focused on the complex network approach to the World Trade Web. Fabio recent objects of research run from dynamical evolving network, non-linear algorithms and complex network null-models; the applications of these methods mostly cover the trade webs as well as other subjects, like biological systems and social networks. Fabio is involved in the European projects CoeGSS and SoBigData.
