About Me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Channing Division of Network Medicine and the Center for Interdisciplinary Cardiovascular Sciences at Brigham and Women's Hospital. My research is centered on the dynamical processes on complex networks. I study biological, social and technological systems with a two-fold approach: analytical formulation and theoretical modeling by utilizing the tools of statistical physics and information theory, and large scale data-driven empirical analysis and modeling. I am also interested in the visualization of complex networks.
