Andrea Baronchelli


My main interest is to understand and model the emerging global properties of social and cognitive systems. I combine Statistical Physics concepts and methods with Network and Data Science approaches, mathematical modelling and experiments with human subjects. 

I am a lecturer in Mathematics at City, University of London.
