Beauty is the first test: there is no permanent place in the world for ugly mathematics.

My name is Barbara Franci. I have a Master's Degree in Mathematics from UniversitĂ  degli Studi di Siena and I received my PhD degree in Pure and Applied Mathematics from UniversitĂ  di Torino - Politecnico di Torino (joint program) in 2018. Then, I was a Post Doctoral researcher at DCSC (Delft Center for Systems and Control) in Technische Universiteit Delft until 2021. Currently, I am Assistant Professor at the Department of Advanced Computing Sciences in Maastricht University. My research topic is mostly related to Game Theory but I am also interested in opinion dynamics and the wisdom of crowds.
