He is aprogram committee member of the Conference on Complex Systems, the Conference on Complex Networks and their Applications, the International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM) and the ACM Web Conference (WWW).



I am interested in complex systems and their modeling using complex networks. I am interested in interdisciplinary approaches and the development of new mathematical tools to answer social, biological and economic questions.

In particular, I am interested in the following topics:

  • Social media and their impact on society: disinformation, social dynamics, media, democracy.
  • Network science: dynamic community detection, dynamics-based methods for temporal networks.

You can find a list of my publications on Google scholar and my ORCID page. You can find a list of my talks here.
