  • Reader in Data Science
  • Dept of Geography
  • Faculty of S&HS

I am a Reader in Data Science at the Department of Geography at University College London, where I lead the Intelligent Social System Lab. I received a PhD in Computer Science from University College London and a Laurea (roughly comparable to a 5-year MSci) in Electronic Engineering from the University of Bologna. I joined UCL in June 2015. I am also a Turing Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute. Before joining UCL, I was a Reader (Senior Lecturer until February 2014) in Networked Systems and Data Science at the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham. From November 2009 to August 2011 I was a SICSA Lecturer at the School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews. I did my postdoctoral work at Dartmouth College and at the University of Cambridge. 

Research Summary

The focus of my work is on modelling human behaviour and dynamics in space and time, at different scales, using the "digital traces" we generate daily in our online and offline lives.  I am interested in developing mathematical and computational models as well as implementing real-world systems based on them. 

 At UCL, I lead the Intelligent Social Systems Lab. Current areas of interest include: computational and mathematical modelling of human behaviour and social systems and its applications (using mobile data, sensor and IoT data, social media, user-generated content, etc.); intelligent systems and applied machine learning; ubiquitous and mobile systems. Application domains include: intelligent services, digital health and data science for social good; security and privacy.
