Giorgio Parisi completed his studies at the University of Rome and he graduated in physics in 1970 under the direction of Nicola Cabibbo.
He carried out his research at the National Laboratories of Frascati, first as fellow of the CNR (1971-1973) and later as a researcher of the INFN (1973-1981). During this period he made long stays abroad: Columbia University, New York (1973-1974), Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques, Bures-sur-Yvettes (1976-1977), Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris (1977-1978).
He was nominated full professor at the University of Rome in February 1981; from 1981 to 1992 he was professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Rome Tor Vergata. Currently (since 1992) is Professor of Theoretical Physics at University of Rome La Sapienza.
In 1992 he was awarded the Boltzmann Medal (awarded every three years by I.U.P.A.P. on Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics) for his contributions to theory of disordered systems and the Max Planck Medal in 2011, from the German physical society.
He also received the Feltrinelli Prize for Physics in 1987, the Dirac medal for theoretical physics in 1999, the Italian President Prize in 2002, the Enrico Fermi Award in 2003, the Dannie Heineman Prize in 2005, the Nonino Prize in 2005, the Galileo Prize in 2006, the Microsoft Prize in 2007, the Lagrange Prize in 2009, the Vittorio De Sica prize in 2011 and the Prix des Trois Physiciens in 2012.
In 2013 he has been awarded the Nature award for mentoring in Science for Italy. In 2015 he has been awarded the 2015 High Energy and Particle Physics Prize by the EPS HEPP Board, for developing a probabilistic field theory framework for the dynamics of quarks and gluons, enabling a quantitative understanding of high-energy collisions involving hadrons‚ (together with Guido Altarelli, Yuri L. Dokshitzer and Lev Lipatov and with James D. Bjorken with a different motivation).
Among many other large grants he received a senior ERC grant in 2010.
He is a member of the Accademia dei Lincei, the Accademia dei Quaranta, the Academie des Sciences, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the European Academy, the Academia Europea and the American Philosophical Society.
In his scientific career he has been working mainly in theoretical physics, addressing topics as diverse as particle physics, statistical mechanics, fluid dynamics, condensed matter, the constructions of scientific computers.
He also wrote some papers on neural networks, immune system and the movement of groups of animals.
His work is extremely well known. In the Google scholar database we can count nearly 800 works with more than 62.000 citations and a H-index of 105. The text of the majority of his most recent papers (last 20 years) can be found in the arXiv preprint and reprint repository.
