Statistical mechanics of disordered systems, message-passing algorithms, and stochastic methods.
“My research in focused on several problems defined on networks and arising in different disciplines, in particular in economics and computer science. For instance, I am interested in the study of game theoretic problems and strategic behaviors in socio-economic and information networks (wireless networks, peer-to-peer communities, financial markets). In the modeling of the dynamical processes taking place on networks (from virus spreading to consensus formation and information diffusion). In the inference of unknown network properties from data. Development of efficient algorithms to solve optimization problems under uncertainty and attack the problem of the optimization and control of dynamical processes on networks”.
