Main Research Interests

My research involves diverse topics and methodologies, mostly around network science and complex systems. I am interested in data science (using network methods, statistics, time series, machine learning), sampling of hard-to-reach populations (both methods and applications to MSM), and computational modeling of dynamic processes (in particular, epidemics and random walks in time-evolving networks). I have experience and interest to work collaboratively with multi-disciplinary teams. I am particularly interested in networks of relevance to public health and social sciences, as for example sexual and social Human/animal interaction networks, mobility data and transportation networks.

My Background

I graduated in Physics, with a minor in Informatics at the University of São Paulo at São Carlos, Brazil, in 2005. The university studies were followed by a master thesis in Computational Physics (with a scholarship from CNPq, the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development) at the same university in 2007. In 2011, I got a PhD in Theoretical Physics at Umeå University, Sweden. Between 2011 and 2013, I was a FSR fellow of the Academie universitaire Louvain co-funded by a Marie Curie Action of the European Comission at the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium. Between 2013 and 2017, I was Assistant Professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, and between 2013 and 2016 I was also FNRS Research Fellow in the Department of Mathematics, Universit√© de Namur, Belgium. From October/2017 to February/2018, I worked as Researcher in the Department of Sociology, Stockholm University, Sweden.
