“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” (Albert Einstein)
A little about me...
I was born the 5th of January 1993 in Savignano sul Panaro, a small village close to Modena and Bologna (Italy).
I decided to pursue research on the emerging fields of Network Science and quantitative Social Science (now Computational Social Science) in 2012, when I read Link and Bursts by Barabási.
To this end, I first earned my Bachelor degree in Physics in July 2015 in the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (110/110 cum Laude). Then, I completed the International Master in Physics of Complex Systems in July 2017, where I earned a joint degree between Italy and France. Specifically, I graduated in the Polytechnic of Turin (110/110 cum Laude) and Paris 7 (15.75/20.00).
In June 2020, I have earned my PhD at New York University Tandon School of Engineering. My PhD dissertation is: Analysis and inference in temporal networks, with application to epidemic spreading
Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the City, University of London and The Alan Turing Institute. I work with Profs. Andrea Baronchelli, Alex Teytelboym, and Angela Gallo in the EPSRC funded project COVID-19: Monitoring the effects of the pandemic on illicit online trade
