Victor M. Preciado is the Raj and Neera Singh Assistant Professor of Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, where he is affiliated with the Networked & Social Systems Engineering program and the Warren Center for Network & Data Sciences. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has also been a visiting scientist at UC Berkeley and Santa Fe Institute. He is the recipient of a recipient of the 2017 National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development ( CAREER) Award.
His main research interests lie at the intersection of Big Data and Network Science; in particular, in using innovative mathematical and computational approaches to capture the essence of complex, highdimensional dynamical systems. Relevant applications of this line of research can be found in the context of sociotechnical networks, brain dynamical networks, healthcare operations, biological systems, and critical technological infrastructure.
