Prior to joining the Department of Biostatistics, I spent two years as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School under the supervision of Professor Nicholas Christakis. Before that I worked at the Harvard Kennedy School for one year as a Fulbright Visiting Scholar with Professor David Lazer. I previously held a Research Fellowship at Oxford University for two years, a position that was joint between the Department of Physics and the Said Business School, where my mentor was Professor Felix Reed-Tsochas. I’m also a CABDyN Associate Fellow and an Associate Fellow at the Said Busines School.
I obtained my Ph.D. at Helsinki University of Technology (now called Aalto University) in 2006, where my supervisor was Professor Kimmo Kaski. My doctoral dissertation “Complex Networks in the Study of Financial and Social Systems” received the Dissertation of the Year Award from the university.
ENTER is the leading conference worldwide where experts and academics on ICT and Tourism can follow the most recent research and exchange knowledge on future trends and on the last innovations. As a member of IFITT, the community that has been organizing ENTER for over twenty years, I have always enjoyed the conference since it is an excellent opportunity to learn and to contact colleagues from the most important universities, as well as tourism and ICT organizations.
