Dr Antonio Moro

Associate Professor

Department: Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering

After completing my Masters degree (2000) and Philosophy Doctorate (2004) in theoretical physics at the University of Salento (former University of Lecce, Italy) I consolidated my research interests in the field of nonlinear mathematics, integrable systems, complex and critical phenomena. 


Currently Associate Professor of Mathematics, I joined the mathematics team at Northumbria University as Senior Lecturer in 2013 following positions as Research Fellow at the University of Salento (2005-2006),  Research Associate at the University of Loughborough (2006-2009), Research Fellow at SISSA - International School of Advanced Studies Trieste (2009-2012) and Research Fellow and contract professor at the Department of Mathematics and Applications, University of Milano-Bicocca (2012-2013). 


I am member and co-founder of the Mathematics of Complex and Nonlinear Phenomena (MCNP) group. 


My research interests span from classification problems in theory of nonlinear partial differential equations and their asymptotics to the development of a unified approach to the solution of multi-body and complex systems and the study of their emergent critical and catastrophic phenomena.


I enjoy teaching mathematics and physics subjects using a research lead approach where classical mathematics and physics problems bring insights of current open research questions.


I am co-organiser of the semester thematic programme  “Dispersive hydrodynamics: Mathematics, simulation and experiments, with applications in nonlinear waves”, Isaac Newton Institute Cambridge, July-December 2022.


I am Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, member of the London Mathematical Society, Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, member of EPSRC Peer Review Associate College.


I currently serve as Head of Subject for Mathematics and Statistics and as part of this role I oversee strategies and coordinate the provision of Mathematics and Statistics programmes in the University.
