Biographical Information

I received my Ph. D. in Physics from Boston University in May 2011 (Advisor: H. Eugene Stanley). I am currently an Asst. professor at the IMT Institute for Advanced Studies Lucca in the Department of Economics and Institutional Change. My curricula and research have focused on the analysis of stochastic phenomena in the social and economic sciences using concepts and methods from statistical physics. I perform high-frequency analysis of Trades and Quotes (TAQ) financial data, and analyze measures for longevity, success, and productivity in science and professional sports. Using methods from statistical mechanics, I search for statistical regularities which can be used to better understand patterns in the growth of individual careers.
