1997 – PhD in Physics at L’ Aquila University/Grasso Sasso National Laboratory 1993 -­‐ Laurea degree with 110/110 cum laude, University of Bari Impact of the Research Work The research work led to more than 120 refereed papers (mostly with 1-­‐2 coauthors), with more than 6000 citations and an impact factor H=47 (from ADS). The results have also been presented in about 90 talks in international conferences, of which about 70 invited review talks, and in numerous colloquia and seminars in Universities and research institutes worldwide. For these results IUPAP issued to PB the Duggal Award 2003.
