I am a F.S.R. Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Université catholique de Louvain and a visiting researcher at the University of Namur, Beligum. My research deals with the analysis of complex systems that can be abstracted as networks or graphs. A central methodological issue underlying my research is how one can study and integrate the multiple levels of organization which are commonplace in many systems. By combining ‘bottom-up’ dynamical models, and ‘top-down’ data-driven approaches, and using a blend of tools from control theory, dynamical systems, stochastic processes, machine learning and statistics, my goal is to shed light on key problems in this context.
I studied Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at ETH Zurich with a focus on communication systems. After a MSc in Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College (Neurotechnology stream), I moved to the Mathematics Department to obtain my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Mauricio Barahona and Prof. Sophia Yaliraki. Following a short Postdoctoral stay at Imperial I have moved to Belgium, where I am currently based.
