Congratulations to Paolo who completed his PhD in Physics at the Universite Aix-Marseille. Paolo defended his thesis titled "Epidemic spreading: the role of host mobility and transportation networks" presenting the work performed within the Epifor project. In particular, Paolo focused on the results achieved working around the clock during the past 2009 pandemic influenza, and on the recent findings about the interplay of bovines displacements and the spreading of zoonotic diseases.
The commitee members insisted on the original development and interdisciplinarity of Paolo's thesis, recognizing the importance of the computational epidemiology approach to aid the modern society in facing the spread of infectious diseases.
