JSMF Postdoctoral Fellow

Department of Network and Data Science (CEU)

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 James S. McDonnell Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Network and Data Science, Central European University.

Previously, I received my PhD from the School of Mathematical Sciences at Queen Mary University of London, where I worked within the Complex Systems and Networks Research Group under the supervision of Vito Latora. I also worked at the Centre de Physique Théorique of Aix-Marseille University, under the supervision of Alain Barrat, and at the Urban Dynamics Lab of the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA), UCL, under the supervision of Elsa Arcaute. I collaborated 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.
