Andrea Baldassarri studied in Sapienza University of Rome and he got his PhD at the University of Paris Sud (Orsay) with a thesis on the Statistics of persistent extreme events. His interests in non-equilibrium statistical physics and complex systems drove him to study several problems related to granular matter, slow dynamics and aging in spin glass models, etching and corrosion processes in aluminum films, erosion of rocky coasts, fractal geomorphology of planets. Such a collection of diverse topics, has been addressed focusing on the emergence of collective phenomena, in the framework of universal statistics of extremes, percolation theory, self-organization.
