Ph.D. Students and Postdoc Opportunities

  • PhD Students. I am looking for students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in my lab. If you are interested please contact me by email in order to discuss potential funding sources for your studies (such as available postgraduate studentships and other potential sources of Ph.D. funding). 

  • Postdoctoral Researchers. I am also happy to discuss other opportunities for working in my group, including fellowships such as those offered through the Newton Fund, EU Skłodowska-Curie Actions or the Fulbright Scholar Program.

Research Interests

Current areas of interest of my lab include:

  • Computational and mathematical modelling of human behaviour and social systems using mobile data and other digital sources (smartphone data, cellular network data, social media, user-generated content, etc.);
  • Ubiquitous computing;
  • Networked systems and network science (with a particular focus on social networks and spatio-temporal networks);
  • Applied machine learning;
  • Digital health;
  • Data science for social good;
  • Security&privacy.
