My research inter­ests are in the area of Com­plex Net­works, Agent-based mod­el­ing, Sys­tem Mod­el­ing and Machine Learn­ing. I’m par­tic­u­larly inter­ested in cre­at­ing new mod­els that abstract and spe­cial­ize com­plex sys­tems with the pur­pose of under­stand the behav­ior in respect to the detail level with which net­works are analyzed.

Moreover,  I’m work­ing on study­ing new instincts that gov­ern the dynam­ics of com­plex systems, with par­tic­u­lar empha­sis on social networks. I inves­ti­gate on the true hid­den rules behind the links cre­ation between ele­men­tary units that form networks.

Finally, I’m apply­ing machine learn­ing con­cepts and algo­rithms in order to study the lan­guage of mes­sages in Twit­ter and how this evolves over time.

I col­lab­o­rate with Mas­simo Mar­chiori, asso­ciate pro­fes­sor at Pure and Applied Math­e­mat­ics Depart­ment, Uni­ver­sity of Padua, and research sci­en­tist at Mass­a­chu­setts Insti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy (W3C).
