The Statistical Materials Modeling group lead by Prof. Stefano Zapperi is part of the Center for Complexity and Biosystems. and located at the Department of Physics of the University of Milano. Research in the group focuses on the statistical properties of materials, including fracture, plasticity and the mechanics of soft matter. We also study complex systems and biophysical phenomena through interdisciplinary collaborations within CC&B.
The group is supported by the European Research Council through Prof. Zapperi’s Advanced Grant – SIZEFFECTS and Proof-of-Concept grant METADESIGN.
Prof. Zapperi recently co-founded a spin-off of CC&B: ComplexData
