I have been awarded the prestigious Junior Scientific Award 2016, an international prize given by the Complex Systems Society for
I have been awarded the prestigious Bruno Rossi Prize 2012 by Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare for the best PhD thesis in Astroparticle Physics, in Italy.
Thesis: Propagation of Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays and anisotropy studies with the Pierre Auger Observatory: the multiscale approach
Among 700+ researchers from all over the world (Asia 23%, USA 22%, Europe 51% and others 4%), we have just won the Nokia Mobile Data Challenge 2012 with our study about Predictability of Human Mobility and Social Interactions, finding that you could improve the predictive accuracy of where someone was going next if you also looked at the mobility information of his or her social group ( read more
Our work "Exploiting Cellular Data for Disease Containment and Information Campaigns Strategies
in Country-Wide Epidemics" (Download here) won the best overall
award in the Orange Data for Development Challenge and it is going to be presented in a
special session at Netmob 2013.
The paper, Disease Containment Strategies based on Mobility and Information Dissemination, published by Scientific Reports (Nature Open Access), is available here: Scientific Reports

Winning European research money does not depend only on a well-funded research base (G. Parisi Nature 530, 33; 2016). We find that it is also contingent on national governments' ability to retain their own scientists ('stickiness') and to attract others from abroad ('attractiveness').
The analysis, Rich-get-richer e ect in the EU research funding success, published by Nature, is available here
