Antonio Culla


I am a researcher in theoretical physics and experimental biophysics. During my PhD in Rome in the CoBBS group, I studied a new model, from a theoretical and a numerical point of view, in order to reproduce the most important and peculiar statistical properties of starling flocks' speeds. Our work has been published in an influential journal fit for a broad audience from the field of physics and biology. My current research project consists of an experiment to investigate stem cells motility and duplication. We are recording time-lapse videos with phase contrast microscopy of in vitro human bone marrow stem cells and also developing a segmentation and tracking algorithm to compute the cells trajectories from cells' videos.
