Dr. Fabio Ciulla is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Climate and Ecosystem Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He received his B.S and M.S in Physics from the University of Rome La Sapienza, where he focused on numerical modeling of liquid systems where the dynamics is driven by short range attraction potentials.
During his PhD at Northeastern University, he modeled nonlinear dynamics of diffusive phenomena such as the spreading of epidemics in the human population and of topics in social media networks. He vastly used network science to characterize the human-human interaction dynamics at large scale. Following graduation he worked in the private sector as scientist, concentrating in the generation of semantic networks from large corpora of text.
At Berkeley Lab, his research is concerned with integration of large datasets, conduction of data analytics and building data-driven models to enable predictions of water quality impacts from disturbances such as floods and droughts.
