I am a physicist with strong interest in data science. I study the interplay between structure and dynamics in complex systems with emphasis on contagion. I apply mathematical statistical and computational tools to large-scale empirical and data oriented research questions. Possible real world applications include agents and diseases spreading, the design of optimal mitigation strategies against outbreaks and the optimal diffusion of ideas through social networks.
Currently, I am a James S. McDonnell Postdoctoral Fellow at the MIT Sloan School of Management. I work with Prof. Sinan Aral on detecting and quantifying causality in contagion of health related behaviors through social networks.
