Subject of research:
My present research interest is on Complex systems and Econophysics, the application of methods from statistical physics, the physics of complex systems and science of networks to macro/micro-economic modeling, financial market analysis and social problems.

Other research interest are:

  • Granular materials (from 2001).
  • Numerical simulations of diffusive processes for the analysis of the magnetic properties in new materials (from 1999 to 2003).
  • Magnetic Properties of High-Tc Superconductors, Josephson Junction networks, Superconducting technological devices (from 1996 to 2003).
  • Strongly Correlated Electronic Systems and High-Tc Superconductivity (from 1994 to 1997).
