About me

I am an econometrician turned researcher in complex networks and complex systems. In my early career, I've also doubled as a consultant in the private sector, building agent-based models of supply chains. As an academic, I crunched numbers, running simulations with artificial adaptive agents in a variety of economics subfields, first as a bursary, then as a tenured research scientist.

In 2017, I turned my career on its head, and got a PhD degree in Computer Science at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, working on complex networks, under the supervision of Eric Fleury, Pablo Jensen and Márton Karsai, with a dissertation titled "Tools for Understanding the Dynamics of Social Networks"/ "Des Outils pour Comprendre les Dynamiques des Réseaux Sociaux".

I am currently working as a Postdoctoral researcher at the Institut für Wirtschafts- und Verwaltungsinformatik of the Universität Koblenz-Landau.

My Erdős number is 3, by the route Erdős-Chung Graham-Vespignani.

1. The Swarm Development Group (SDG) is an American non-profit organization to advance the development of complex adaptive system-oriented agent-based modeling (ABM) tools initiated at the Santa Fe Institute (SFI) in Santa Fe, New Mexico, US. It was formed in 1999 by a group of multidisciplinary scientists, researchers, and software developers, led by Chris Langton. Langton was also the founder of the emerging field of research called artificial life. The initial, primary, role for the SDG was to house continued development of the Swarm simulation software after the software become independent of the SFI in 1999 (from Wikipedia).
