Marco Buongiorno NardelliUniversity Distinguished Research Professorat University of North Texas
Marco Buongiorno Nardelli is a computational physicist, composer and media artist who brings a platform for Art/Science integration rooted in his profound and extensive expertise in development of scientific and artistic software and his vision for sustainable community software development. He is University Distinguished Research Professor at the University of North Texas, with academic appointments in Physics, Chemistry and Composition, and a member of iARTA, the Initiative for Advanced Research in Technology and the Arts and of CEMI, the Center for Experimental Music and Intermedia. His scientific research activities range from the design and discovery of novel materials for 21st century applications in renewable energy, environment, nano-electronics and devices, to the development of advanced electronic structure theories and high-throughput techniques in materials genomics and computational materials design. As a music theorist he is a pioneer in the application of complexity theories and big data analysis tools to the structure of music as a generalized mathematical space. As an artist, he is internationally recognized for his music/new media installations, and his artistic research is rooted in the duality "music as data, data as music", including the translation of scientific data and processes into sonic, and potentially artistic, material.
He has published more than 175 papers that have garnered more than 15400 citations as of November 2020 (H-index: 56). He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and of the Institute of Physics, an Associate Fellow of IMéRA, the Institute for Advanced Studies of Aix-Marseille University in Marseille, France and a Parma Recordings artist.
