My Research Group

I lead the Networked Systems and Data Science Lab at Birmingham. The  lab is part of the Birmingham Human-Computer Interaction Center.

The scope of our research work is fairly broad and rather interdisciplinary. Current areas of interest include:

    - Social and ubiquitous computing;
    - Large-scale data mining ("big data" mining) and data science;
    - Networked systems and network science


PhD Students

- Antonio Lima
working on "Structure and Dynamics of Large-Scale Spatially-Embedded Social Networks"
- Abhinav Mehrotra working in the area of context-aware computing (title to be decided)
- Theofania (Fani) Tsapeli working in the area of real-time data mining of mobile sensing information and social media (title to be decided)

Postdoctoral Fellows


- Atieh Mirshavalad (EU-funded "LASAGNE" Project)
- Veljko Pejovic (EPSRC-funded "UBhave" Project)
-
Luca Rossi (EPSRC-funded "The Uncertainty of Identity" Project)

Previous Members


- Manlio De Domenico (Postdoctoral Research Fellow  involved in the EPSRC-funded "The Uncertainty of Identity" Project, now Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Universitat Rovira i Virgili in Tarragona, Spain)

- Paul Mougel (Visiting Student from INSA Lyon, France, now finishing his Undergraduate degree back in France)
- Thiago Silva (Visiting PhD Student from Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais - UFMG, Brazil)
