With my research I develop mathematical models to account for this high level of complexity of networked systems. We use higher-order tensors to encode available information and to represent these integrated systems, called multilayer networks.
I use multilayer modeling and analysis of complex data to understand structure and dynamics of systems of systems. Our theoretical and computational studies are (mostly) based on dynamical processes (e.g., random walks) to investigate:
We have shown that multilayer modeling often provides more insights than more traditional approaches, because they allow to naturally integrate available structural/relational/dynamical information. We successfully apply multilayer modeling and analysis to study: (selection)
I have an extended network of collaborators worldwide. With some research institutions I have special collaboration agreements or partnerships.
When I do not work to find an answer to fundamental questions, I strictly collaborate with non-academic partners on projects or international challenges of high societal impact.
