Sauro Succi, Director of Research, Istituto Applicazioni del Calcolo "Mauro Picone", Rome, National Research Council of Italy
Dr Sauro Succi holds a degree in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Bologna and a PhD in Plasma Physics from the EPFL, Lausanne. Since 1995 he serves as a Director of Research at the Istituto Applicazioni Calcolo of the Italian National Research Council in Rome and also as Research Associate of the Physics Department of Harvard University and a Visiting Professor at the Institute of Applied Computational Science at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences of Harvard University. He has published extensively on a broad range of topics in computational kinetic theory and non-equilibrium statistical physics, including thermonuclear plasmas, fluid turbulence, micro and nanofluidics, as well as quantum-relativistic flows.
