Biography

I am a physicist with a strong interest in applied sciences. My research deals with Complex Networks, Data Science and their application to the study and modeling of social and urban systems.

I am a PhD Candidate at Queen Mary University of London, where I work within the Complex Systems and Networks Research Group under the supervision of Vito Latora (QMUL). I am also working at the Urban Dynamics Lab of the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA), UCL, under the supervison of Elsa Arcaute. I collaborate with the Dynamical Systems and Statistical Physics Group (QMUL) as part of the LoBaNet project.

I spent part of my PhD at The Alan Turing Institute (London) as part of the enrichment doctoral scheme. Previously, I worked at the ISI Foundation in Turin within the Data Science and Mathematics & Foundation of Complex Systems groups. Before, I was Data Science Intern at UN Universal Postal Union in Bern.
