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 top event worldwide in the area of Information Technology in Tourism. It is exactly where one can find state of the art academic research but also industry knowledge and insights on trends and innovative applications that are driving change in Tourism. What I like most about ENTER was the plurality of the themes presented, but also the ideal mix of perspectives between the academia and the industry.
