Paolo Barucca Former Postdoc
Statistical physics, financial systemic risk, network theory and science communication.
Dr Paolo Barucca is a senior postdoc in theoretical physics at the London Institute. He did his PhD at the University of Rome, Sapienza under Prof Georgio Parisi, specializing in the statistical physics of disordered and complex systems. Dr Barucca studies systemic risk in financial networks. In particular, he seeks general and reliable indicators of the risk of default cascades in networks to prevent systemic crises and to design more sustainable financial policies. He co-founded the Institute’s ComplexiLate series, which brings young researchers together to share their work through short talks, discussion and drinks.
