My academic background is in physics, which I studied at the University of Padova and the Free University of Berlin. I hold a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from the Humboldt University of Berlin. My interests are centered at the intersection of physics and biology. One prominent aspect of my research revolves around investigating the effects of noise in biological systems. By studying noise-incorporating models and comparing their predictions to experimental data, I strive to understand how stochastic elements influence the dynamics of diverse biological networks, encompassing neuronal circuits and ecological communities. In addition to my primary area of focus, I am actively exploring the application of nonlinear methods for analyzing human brain data, aiming to uncover potential associations with pathological conditions.
