About me
I began my scientific career as a theoretician in a physics lab that examined particle’s behavior in extremely low temperatures. I built simulation to describe and predict outcomes of experimental results. In my PhD, I moved to the Gonda Brain Science Center and extend my knowledge in Biology and Psychology. I study networks and complex systems in varied contexts. I am greatly interesting in quantitative methods to describe social, biological and economic phenomena’s, and getting insight out of large and messy data.

Research Interest

  • Connection between content to structures in dynamic networks
  • Human behavior patterns
  • Modeling human behavior and complex networks
  • Community formation
  • Edges deletion
  • Homophily creation and opinions dynamic in social networks
  • Networks collapse
  • Emergence and dynamic of a new ideas
