Research Publications Talks Resources Teaching

I am a Departmental Lecturer (roughly Assistant Professor) in the Department of Engineering Science, a faculty member of the Oxford-Man Institute, and a research fellow of Somerville College, all at the University of Oxford. Prior to joining Oxford, I was a Postdoctoral Associate in the MIT Media Lab, where I remain as a research affiliate, and received my PhD degree from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland.

I am primarily interested in utilising graphs to model relational structure within the data, and developing novel techniques that lie at the intersection of machine learning, signal processing, and complex networks to study questions across social and economic sciences, with a particular focus on understanding human behaviour, decision making and societal changes.
