Claudio Conti (Ph.D. 2002) is the Director of the Institute for Complex Systems of the National Research Council (ISC-CNR).
Associate Professor at the Department of Physics of the University Sapienza in Roma (IT), formerly “Primo Ricercatore” of the Italian National Research Council at the Institute for Complex Systems (ISC-CNR), and New Talent Grant of the Research Center Enrico Fermi, he has been awarded in 2008 by a Starting Independent Research Grant from the European Research Council, with the project Light and Complexity (funded by 1085keuros), selected over more than 9000 applications with less than 3% retained. In 2010, he obtained the Humboldt Research Fellowship for Experienced Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light.
CC graduated in 1997 in Electrical Engineering at Sapienza (Rome, IT) and obtained the PhD in 2002 at the University Roma Tre (IT). His research activity spans from experiments, to theory, to massive parallel computation, mainly in the fields of nonlinear physics, optics and photonics, and more recently in the science of complexity. This activity developed in academic and industrial institutions. Since 1997 C.C. authored more than 150 articles and contributed to more than 50 international conferences.
