I am a researcher interested in complex systems and complex networks. I am interested in interdisciplinary approaches and the development of new mathematical tools to answer social, biological and economic questions. My main research interests are the study of social media and their impact on society and the development of new methods to study networks and their dynamics.

I am an Assistant Professor in Quantitative Network Science at the Department of Mathematical Modeling and Machine Learning in the Faculty of Science of the University of Zurich and a member of the Digital Society Initiative.
