Fabio Saracco

Fabio Saracco has a Master's Degree in Theoretical Physics at the University of Florence, with a thesis on non-linear Cosmological perturbations. He obtained his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics (String Theory) at the University of Milano Bicocca in 2013, with a thesis on the resolution of strings singularities with A. Tomasiello (INFN, and Physics Dep., University of Milano Bicocca). In 2013 he moved to Complex Systems research: at the Institute for Complex Systems (ISC-CNR, Sapienza Department, Rome), he worked on Economic Complexity, a brand new branch of economic analysis able to measure the productivity capabilities of different countries. In this period, Fabio, in collaboration with Riccardo Di Clemente (ISC-CNR; MIT, Boston), Andrea Gabrielli (ISC-CNR; IMT School) and Tiziano Squartini (ISC-CNR; IMT School), developed an entropy-based method for network randomization for the special class of bipartite networks, with direct applications in Economic Complexity. Since October 2015, Fabio joined the NETWORKS research unit at IMT School. Fabio recent objects of research run from dynamical evolving network, non-linear algorithms and complex network null-models; the applications of these methods mostly cover the Trade Webs, but recently have been enlarged to other subjects, like Biological systems and Social networks.
