I am a Departmental Lecturer (roughly Assistant Professor) in the Department of Engineering Science and a Faculty Member of the Oxford-Man Institute, University of Oxford. Prior to joining Oxford, I was a Postdoctoral Associate in the Human Dynamics Group of the MIT Media Lab, where I remain as a research affiliate, and received my PhD degree in Signal Processing from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland.
My research focuses on two intertwined aspects: theoretically, how emerging machine learning and signal processing techniques developed on networks help us decode the complexity of and structure behind data observations; and practically, how this, together with the increasing amount of information being collected about ourselves, enables us to better understand the roles physical environment and social network play in shaping human and social behaviour as well as transforming urban environment and modern society.
