About

Antonio Scala holds a Master degree in Physics and Computer Science at the University of Napoli "Federico II" and a PhD in condensed matter Physics at the Boston University. He is now research professor of physics in the CNR Institute for Complex Systems at the University of Roma "La Sapienza", associate professor at IMT Alti Studi Lucca and research Fellow at LIMS the London Institute for Mathematical Sciences. His main skills are Statistical Physics and Computational Physics; he has published papers on percolation, disordered systems, pattern formation, metastable liquids, glassy systems, energy landscapes, protein folding, complex networks, event-driven algorithms, Brownian simulations for hard-bodies, complexity in economics, network medicine, power grids, self-healing networks. Together with G. D'Agostino, he is the organizer of the workshop series "Networks of networks" on Systemic Risk and Infrastructural Inter-dependencies. His current research focus is on complex infrastructural networks and on computational social science.
