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.
The IFITT community is growing worldwide and this is a sign of good health and liveliness. The presentations at ENTER gave me useful insights on current advances in academic research as well as in industry and destination practices. Good food for thought and inspiration for future projects! The interaction between academia, industry and public organizations is the strength of the conference and the aspect I appreciated more. ENTER is the ideal gate to the tourism and IT world for students and a good opportunity for industry and destination practitioners who want to stay tuned on innovative strategic solutions and applications for their activities. The organization of thematic workshops bringing together research papers and industry case studies could be the added value of ENTER.
