Simona Cocco works on statistical mechanics applied to inverse problems related to biophysical systems. Two examples are the extraction of information on the DNA sequence from the mechanical separation of the complementary strands and the inference of the couplings between neural cells from their spiking activity observed in multielectrode recordings.
