Giorgio Parisi (born August 4, 1948) is an Italian physicist. In 2021, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics together with Syukuro Manabe and Klaus Hasselmann. Parisi received the Nobel Prize for "the discovery of the interplay of disorder and fluctuations in physical systems from atomic to planetary scale".
Parisi completed his doctorate in 1970 at La Sapienza in Rome. He worked as a researcher until 1981 when he became professor of theoretical physics at the Università degli Studi di Roma "Tor Vergata". In 1992 he became a professor of quantum theory at La Sapienza in Rome. Parisi has written over 600 articles in particle physics, statistical physics and chaos systems. He has also studied the collective behavior of animals and contributes to Simons' collaboration Cracking the Glass Problem, which seeks to find theories of structure, excitation and, when the glass shatters, the dynamics of "glassy materials". Parisi has received a number of awards, including the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2021.
