T313 Dept. Computer Science

Post-doctoral researcher at Department of Computer Science.

My research concentrates on the functional networks of the human brain at multiple spatial and temporal scales. I work to develop and implement tools for modelling the brain as a temporal network on a flexible and naturalistic way, paying special attention on the accurate definition of network nodes and links. I am interested in multilayer network presentations of the brain, disruptive effects of neurological diseases on the network structure of the brain, the functional role of brain areas’ changing functional homogeneity, and connections between brain’s structure and function.

Further, I am interested to apply network methods to understand urban climate governance and actions.
