Research Interests

As a data scientist I explore and try to make sense what happens in complex, dynamical networks. I'm interested in ecological networks and the evolutionary processes that modify them in time; in particular I develop mathematical and statistical tools to study the relationship between ecological biodiversity and evolutionary diversity.

I'm also interested in Social Networks, especially online. I try to understand what makes them work in the way they work.
