I am a postdoctoral researcher taking a network perspective on complex systems. In particular, I pursue a data-driven research approach which includes both applied and theoretical research on the modeling and analysis of networked systems. The systems I study include distributed technical systems like computer networks, Peer-to-Peer systems, as well as socio-technical systems found in collaborative software engineering processes, information systems and social media.
I have a background in practical computer science and mathematics and my approach can best be described as interdisciplinary, combining perspectives from computer science, data science, statistics, network science, and statistical physics. My work experience covers research in social and information networks, distributed systems and computer networks, P2P systems, distributed virtual reality and collaborative software engineering. From my involvement in the design and implementation of the Peer-to-Peer Event Monitoring System of the ATLAS detector at CERN, I also have practical experience in software engineering, as well as in the design of very large-scale distributed systems.
