Main research interests

Qualitative theory of nonlinear dynamical systems and their applications to the description of complex systems, ranging from physics and biology up to economics, environment and social sciences, with the related concepts of stability, bifurcations and deterministic chaos, also in connection with dynamic game theory, in particular evolutionary games. Popularisation and communication of mathematical ideas, with a particular focus on connections between science and other cultural fields, from literature to art.
