Since September 2013 I'm working at INO-CNR at Florence as Researcher. My present research subject is still the study of dynamic and thermodynamic properties of classical and quantum many-body systems.
From December 2011 to August 2013 I have worked at the ISC-CNR at Florence as Researcher. Studing the dynamic and thermodynamic properties of classical and quantum many-body systems.
From January 2010 to December 2010 I have worked at the Dept. of Physics of Florence University as Temporary Researcher and I have studied some dynamic thermodynamic aspects of Bose-Hubbard model and Discrete non-linear Schroedinger equation.
From January 2009 to December 2009 I have worked at the Dept. of Mathematics and Informatics of Salerno University as member of the Prof. Fabrizio Illuminati's Quantum Theory Group.
From August 2005 to December 2008, I have worked at the Dept. of Physics of Florence University, here I have kept on working on Bose-Einstein condensation, in collaboration with Prof. R. Livi (of Florence University) and Prof. G.-L. Oppo (University of Strathclyde, Glasgow UK) that are theoreticians specialist in Statistical Mechanics, Dynamical Systems and Non-linear Optics. The union of our expertises allows us to predict an interesting phenomenon of self-localization for Bose-Einstein condensates in dissipative optical lattices.
From December 2000 to July 2005, I have worked at the Dept. of Physics of Pisa University. There I have worked first in close collaboration with the Prof. E. Arimondo's Bose-Einstein condensation group, and later as part of his group itself. I greatly appreciated the collaboration with the experimental group of Prof. Arimondo where my knowledge of theoretical physics has been exploited. In this experience I have adapted my theoretical models to schemes closer to the experimental configurations. The research work done in Pisa on coherent transport of Bose-Einstein condensates in optical lattice, represents an important progress in the application of Bose-Einstein condensates to quantum computation.
Before December 2000, I have been to Turin where I have collaborated with Prof. V. Penna at the Dept. of Physics of the Polytechnic. There I started my studies on Bose-Einstein condensation and the collaboration with Prof. Penna has profitably continued up to now. Before my post doc in Turin, during my PhD, I have worked on a Geometrical and Topological approach to the study Thermodynamic Phase Transitions, from these studies, my collaborator Dr. M. Pettini, and me, have derived a theorem proving a necessary topological condition for the occurrence of ﬁrst or second order phase transitions. I have got my graduation degree in Pisa, with a theoretical thesis in General Relativity, Prof. E. Guadagnini has been thesis supervisor. In addition to the above mentioned collaborations I have also worked with Prof. R. Gatto in Geneva and Prof. E. G. D. Cohen (Rockefeller University, New York).
