I am a statistical physicist, i.e. a physicist who uses the framework of
Statistical Physics to study the macroscopic properties of microscopic particles obeying to Boltzmann, Fermi-Dirac,
Bose-Einstein, or the more specific anyonic statistics holding only in a two dimensional world.

I accomplish this bottom-up process either through analytical perturbative and non-perturbative tools and through Monte-Carlo simulations which are able to determine the exact numerical solution for the many-body equations underlying the microscopic physical system under study. I do this in the endless process of comparing theoretical results and predictions with Laboratory observations.

I am a Ph.D. from the Physics Department of the
University of Trieste (Italy) and I worked in the Physics Departments of the
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA),
of the University *Ca' Foscari* of Venice (Italy),
and of the University of Stellenbosch (South-Africa).

Of particular interest to me is the concept of

*fluid*, a particular realization of a microscopic many-body system, allowing for the gas, the liquid, and the solid phases. Fluids can either be found spontaneously in Nature or can be engineered in a Laboratory. I recently wrote a short book on one particular fluid recently engineered in the Laboratory:**. The anisotropic interaction between two particles of this fluid allows for the formation of unconventional self-assembly where the stable clusters: the micelles and the vesicles, are weakly interacting among themselves. And this is responsible for the stability of the vapor phase at higher densities at low temperatures.***"The Janus Fluid: A Theoretical Perspective"*
