Our papers are the official record of our discoveries. They allow others to build on and apply our work. Each paper is the result of many months of research, so we make a special effort to make them clear, beautiful and inspirational, and publish them in leading journals.

  • Portfolio analysis and geographical allocation of renewable sources: a stochastic approach

    Economic complexity

    ASA. ScalaAFUPRB Energy Policy

    Renewable resource management

    Modern portfolio theory inspires a strategy for allocating renewable energy sources which minimises the impact of production fluctuations.

  • A holistic approach for collaborative workload execution in volunteer clouds

    Ignoble research

    SSS. SebastioMAALASA. Scala ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation

    Volunteer clouds

    A novel approach to volunteer clouds outperforms traditional distributed task scheduling algorithms in the presence of intensive workloads.

  • Mitigating cascades in sandpile models: an immunization strategy for systemic risk?

    Financial risk

    ASA. ScalaVZGCG. CaldarelliGD Journal de Physique IV

    Immunisation of systemic risk

    Targeted immunisation policies limit distress propagation and prevent system-wide crises in financial networks according to sandpile models.

  • Cascades in interdependent flow networks

    Network theory

    ASA. ScalaPLGCG. CaldarelliGD Physica D

    Cascades in flow networks

    Coupled distribution grids are more vulnerable to a cascading systemic failure but they have larger safe regions within their networks.

  • Network theory

    PLoS ONE

    Self-healing complex networks

    The interplay between redundancies and smart reconfiguration protocols can improve the resilience of networked infrastructures to failures.

  • Economic complexity

    PLoS ONE

    Network analysis of export flows

    Network theory finds unexpected interactions between the number of products a country produces and the number of countries producing each product.

  • Mathematical medicine

    PLoS ONE

    Networks for medical data

    Network analysis of diagnostic data identifies combinations of the key factors which cause Class III malocclusion and how they evolve over time.

  • Network theory


    Robust and assortative

    Spectral analysis shows that disassortative networks exhibit a higher epidemiological threshold and are therefore easier to immunize.
