hello, I'm Francesco =)
I'm an italian theoretical physicist interested in supersymmetry, effective susy field theory (Seiberg-Witten solution, Veneziano-Yankielowicz and so on) and superstring theories.
At the present time, I'm working in statistical mechanics and molecular dynamics simulations of proteins, with the aim to understand misfolding.
I'm completing the final year of my Ph.D. in Physics at the Department of Physics, University of Rome II.
I love classical music, from polyphonic to Stravinsky and Shostakovich, and opera (mainly Rossini and Mozart), and I love rock bands from the 70's, namely Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Jethro Tull.
I am trying to learn to play the clarinet and the alto sax. I think that MANY years will pass before being able to play properly :-)
My favorite players include Alekhine, Reti, Nimzowitsch from the old times, and Tal, Kasparov, Anand, Shirov, Morozevich from later times. Ok, it's a long list, I know!
My favorite chess book is (still) Understanding chess move by move by Nunn, which is at the right degree of complexity and difficulty for me to understand.
I am currently living in Rome, Italy. I'm 25.
