Duccio Piovani

Duccio has completed both a bachelor degree in Physics and a master degree in Theoretical Physics at Universita’ degli studi di Roma “La Sapienza” in Rome.  There he started studying  complex systems, working  for his master thesis with Irene Giardina and Andrea Cavagna on collective animal behaviour. At the moment he is  part of the Complex&Networks Group at Imperial College London, working on his Ph.D. with prof. H.J. Jensen on the CONGAS project  (http://www.congas-project.eu). His research is focused on studying the relation, in evolving networks, between stability and topology. This is done in the framework of the Tangled Nature Model, and sees its applications in the fields of evolutionary dynamics and financial markets.
