Ginestra Bianconi is Professor of Applied Mathematics in the School of Mathematical Sciences of Queen Mary University of London and she is Alan Turing Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute. Currently she is Chief Editor of JPhys Complexity, Editor of PloSOne, and Scientific Reports, and she is Associate Editor of Chaos, Solitons and Fractals. Award: Network Science Fellowships by the NetSci Society.
Her research activity on Statistical Mechanics and Network Science includes Network Theory and its interdisciplinary applications. She has formulated the Bianconi-Barabasi model that displays the Bose-Einstein condensation in complex networks. She has formulated the statistical mechanics of network ensembles and she has proven their non-equivalence. She has made important contribution on the study of critical phenomena on networks. In the last years, she has been focusing on multilayer networks, simplicial complexes, network geometry and topology, percolation, synchronization and network control. She is the author of the books Multilayer Networks: Structure and Function (Oxford University Press, 2018), Higher-order Networks: An introduction to simplicial complexes (Cambridge University Press, 2021) and editor of Networks of Networks in Biology (Cambridge University Press, 2021).
