I am a Postdoctoral researcher at the Copenhagen Center for Social Data Science (SODAS) of the University of Copenhagen, working in collaboration with the department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). My research interests stay at the intersection of computational social science and data science, with focus on studying human behaviors through digital traces. My current research aims at investigating the use of digital technologies and smartphones to understand their effects on human behaviors.
I previously worked as a Postdoctoral researcher at the USC Information Sciences Institute, where my research aimed at monitoring and modeling human behaviors in online environments, with specific focus on performance and engagement of users in online games.
I hold a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the Polytechnic University of Turin, where I worked in collaboration with the Data Science group at the ISI Foundation of Turin. Here, I focused on the development of tensor factorization techniques and their applications to high-dimensional data of human-proximity.
