Summary

I am a Marie-Słodowska Curie Fellow at Imperial College London, based at the Centre of Complexity Science and affiliated both in the Departments of Mathematics and the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

My current work is focused in the development of tools to enable a deeper understanding of the interdependencies that can take place in systems composed of many interacting agents. I am interested in the most fundamental and theoretical aspects of this problem, and also in the consequences and applications in diverse contexts, related to basic sciences, engineering and arts.

Although we currently live in a world characterized by interrelationship and connectivity, the interdependencies that can exist between three or more variables or stochastic processes are poorly understood. Improving this understanding is paramount for future advances in neuroscience, genetics, network science and many other fields that explore systems composed by many interacting variables. Moreover, this understanding might prove to be fundamental in our post-modern society, where the surprising outcomes of recent political polls (e.g. the Brexit referendum and the latest US presidential election) are revealing the limitation of our current understanding of social behaviour in a highly-interconnected world.
