I am a physicist interested in complex systems and in their modelling using complex networks. I am interested in interdisciplinary approaches to answer biological and social questions using tools from physics and data science.

In particular, I am interested by the following topics:

  • Temporal networks: community detection, dynamics of social networks
  • Data science: clustering algorithms for dynamical data, opinion mining, information diffusion, causality discovery
  • Stochastic processes: diffusion, continuous-time random walks, non-Gaussian processes, non-Markovian systems

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in Belgium at the Namur Center for Complex Systems of the University of Namur with Prof. Renaud Lambiotte and at the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, Electronics and Applied Mathematics of the Université Catholique de Louvain with Prof. Jean-Charles Delvenne.

Before that, I was at the Levich Institute of the City College of New York, USA, with a fellowship of the SNSF in the lab of Prof. Hernan Makse, working on the diffusion of information and opinion dynamics in social networks. I also investigated the spread of diseases in a contact network of a population of wild mice as well as its social and behavioral organization in collaboration with Prof. Barbara Koenig at the Theoretical Biology lab of Prof. Sebastian Bonhoeffer at the ETHZ, Zurich, Switzerland.

I received my PhD in physics from EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, where I was working on the transport of particles in turbulent plasmas with Prof. Ambrogio Fasoli and Prof. Ivo Furno as supervisors.
