Luciano Teresi


I am Professor of Mathematical Physics at University Roma TRE. My scientific interests pertain to Soft Matter, and Continuum Physics. Besides theoretical modeling, I especially like computer simulations. I also advise a team of special students in the Lab of Computational Sciences at Dept. of Mathematics and Physics.

Here is my page at Research Gate; email:
