He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a Fellow of the American Association for Advancement of Science. He has been co-author and co-editor of two books on physics, has published two books on philosophy including one on What is Hinduism and one on poetry titled Tinnitus. Luca Giuggioli is a Senior Lecturer in the department of Engineering Mathematics at the University of Bristol. As a postdoc he joined the department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton and in 2013 he co-founded the journal Movement Ecology of which he has been Co-Editor-in-Chief since.
