About me

I am researcher / data analyst currently working as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Senseable City Lab, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

My interests lies in the understanding and modeling of socio-economic systems, social dynamics and mobility, and social networks from a statistical physics viewpoint. I’m involved in projects focusing on social networks and human behavior in cities. The focus of my current work is the understanding of human interactions within cities as analyzed through mobile phone data, social network data and other sources of digital traces of human behavior.
