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.
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 Janus Fluid: A Theoretical Perspective". 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.
