I am a Departmental Lecturer (roughly Assistant Professor) in the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford, where I am an academic member of both the Machine Learning Research Group and the Oxford-Man Institute. Prior to joining Oxford, I was a Postdoctoral Associate at 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. I apply these techniques to study questions across social and economic sciences, with a particular focus on understanding human behaviour, decision making and societal changes.
