Virginia GIORNO Curriculum

Virginia Giorno is graduated in Information Science at the University of Salerno. Since 2014 she is Full Professor of Computer Science at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Salerno.

Her research interests are turned to the development of general methods for the description and the analysis of complex dynamic systems in evolution. Her scientific activity is oriented on the following themes:

  • analysis and comparison of various probabilistic models suitable to describe neuronal systems, as well as adaptive service systems and systems subject to growth in random environment,
  • theoretical studies on Markov and Gaussian processes,
  • design of new efficient algorithms to evaluate first-passage-time densities and their moments in the presence of time-dependent boundaries.


The main obtained scientific results are presented in papers appeared in international scientific journals (cf. Publications List).  

She has co-organized various international Meetings among which are: 

- “International Workshop on First Passage Time Problems and Applications” (University of Naples Federico II, 1993)

- “Biocomp 2002: Topics in Biomathematics and Related Computational Problems at the Beginning of Third Millennium” (Vietri sul Mare, 2002)

- “Biocomp 2005: Diffusion processes in Neurobiology and Sub-cellular Biology” (Vietri sul Mare, 2005)

- “Biocomp 2007: Collective Dynamics: Topics on Competition and Cooperation in the Biosciences” (Vietri sul Mare, 2007).

-“Biocomp 2012: - Mathematical Modeling and Computational Topics in Biosciences” (Vietri sul Mare, 2012).
