Hi! I am Silvia Bonfanti.

I am postdoc at the Department of Physics at University of Milan.

My research focus on Physics of Complex Systems, with special interest in

glassy materials, biophysics, nanoscience and mechanical metamaterials.

Universal low-frequency vibrational modes in silica glasses

Universality of glassy vibrational modes for the first time in a realistic glass system.

Automatic Design of Mechanical Metamaterial Actuators

combining a reinforced Monte Carlo method with discrete element simulations. 3D printing of selected mechanical metamaterial actuators shows that the machine-generated structures can reach high efficiency, exceeding human-designed structures. We also show how to design efficient actuators by training a deep neural network.
