Costanza Benassi

Research Fellow

Department: Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering

Costanza is a Research Fellow in the Faculty of Engineering and Environment at Northumbria University


Costanza Benassi, Northumbria University Academic Staff I am a Research Fellow in Mathematics. My research area is Mathematical Physics, with a particular focus on Statistical Mechanics.

I earned a PhD in Mathematics from the University of Warwick in 2018. In my thesis I investigated various properties of classical and quantum lattice spin systems, and I worked under the supervision of Dr D.Ueltschi.

Before my PhD, I earned a BSc in Physics and a 2-year MSc in Theoretical Physics at the University of Bologna, Italy.
