I am a Juan de la Cierva (Senior) Research Assistant Professor at the School of Computer Science and Mathematics, Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona, Spain), where I am part of the Alephsys group led by Alex Arenas

A (non-exhaustive) list of my research interests includes:

  • Structure and dynamics of complex systems, mostly modeled as multilayer networks
  • Resilience of complex networks to random and targeted structural/dynamical pertubations
  • Information diffusion in (multilayer) systems
  • Information theory of complex networks
  • Advanced mathematical techniques for dimensionality reduction
  • Complex analysis of (big) data
My research finds applications in systems biology, systems medicine, computational social sciences, computational epidemiology and data-driven policy making.

I am co-director of the Mediterranean School of Complex Networks and member of the Complex Systems Society Council.
