I am Associate Professor at the Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Catania, member of IMM-MATIS-CNR, associate member of INFN-Sezione di Catania, staff Visiting Professor at the Centre for Quantum Technologies (Singapore) and Lanef-'Chaire d'excellence' Univ. Grenoble-Alpes & CNRS. I have documented long term experience on quantum statistical mechanics and theoretical solid state physics with specific application to quantum information and cold atoms physics; my expertise includes non-perturbative methods for strongly interacting quantum systems, critical phenomena, mesoscopic physics, physics of magnetically ordered systems, physics of trapped ultra-cold atoms. I am author of more than 80 papers with current h-index equal to 24. My papers have been cited more than 4350 times and he presented more than 80 invited talks. I am member of the Editorial Board of Scientific Reports and I acted as Associate Editor for two volumes in International Journal of Modern Phyics B and New Journal of Physics. My publications include articles in high impact journals (1 Nature, 1 Review of Modern Physics, 10 Physical Review Letters, and 2 Phys. Rev. X, 1 Quant. Sci. Tech).
