After his PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Palermo, Rosario held positions at the University of Catania, the National Interuniversity Consortium for the Physical Sciences of Matter (CNISM), the University of Nottingham and University of São Paulo. He is currently researcher, Physics professor and member of the doctorate board at the Department of Engineering of the University of Palermo, Italy. He leads a research team (Quantum Things Group) on various aspects related to quantum correlations and open quantum systems within a quantum information scenario.
Rosario is member of the Editorial Board of Scientific Reports (Nature Publishing Group), Applied Sciences (MDPI) and Associate Editor-in-Chief of Entropy (MDPI). He co-organised a Discussion Meeting at the Royal Society and is often a speaker at popular events to disseminate academic research. He has been invited in several international conferences and institutions to deliver seminars and talks.
RLF's main research contributions concern the dynamics of quantum correlations and entanglement in open quantum systems and, most recently, the characterisation of composite systems of indistinguishable quantum particles.
