Valentina Ros is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the LPENS since November 2018. She obtained her PhD in Statistical Physics in October 2016 at the International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste, under the supervision of Markus Mueller and Antonello Scardicchio. She then moved to the Institut de Physique Théorique in Saclay, where she worked for two years with Giulio Biroli, within the Simons Collaboration on Cracking the Glass Problem.
Her research interest focuses on out-of-equilibrium dynamics, localization phenomena, random and complex landscapes and glasses. Her main contribution to the field of quantum disordered systems is the investigation of integrability and emergent conservation laws in many-body systems that break ergodicity and do not equilibrate due to localization. More recently, she focused on the problem of characterizing the geometrical properties of rugged, high-dimensional landscapes emerging in
classical glassy and complex systems, with the goal of understanding how the landscape’s structure affects their dynamical behavior.
About the prize
This prize is awarded to an early career scientist (defined as having obtained his/her PhD less than 6 years ago at the time of nomination) who has made outstanding research contributions to an area of statistical physics, nonlinear physics, complex systems, or complex networks, as evidenced by a top quality and highly cited paper in an international journal.
