Prof.ssa Lucilla de Arcangelis
Lucilla de Arcangelis, after a Master degree in Physics at the University of Neaples in 1980, received the Ph.D. in Physics at the Boston University (Boston, USA) in 1986, with a thesis on multifractal properties in percolation. After a Post Doc with D. Stauffer at Koeln University (Cologne, Germany), has been awarded a CEE fellowship at the CEA (Saclay, France). During this period she has worked on cellular automata, different percolation models spin glass and statistical models for fracture of heterogeneous media. In 1990 she obtained a CNRS position at the ESPCI in Paris. There she worked on surface cracking and on deep bed filtration in porous media. In 1993 she obtained an Associate Professor position in Theoretical Physics at the University of L'Aquila (Italy). In 1996 she moved her position to the Second University of Neaples.
In recent years her research activity has been focused on static and dynamic properties of sol-gel transition, neuronal networks and seismic forecasting. At present she has published more than 100 papers on international journals and proceedings of international conferences. Her papers have received more than 2000 citations overall (h index=23). She is referee for several journals.
