Welcome to my professional home page. I am an Associate Professor of Complex Systems and Data Science at the Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of São Paulo, and head of the Complex Systems Group. For one year (2018-2019), I was a visiting professor at the University of Warwick, Mathematics Institute, working at the Centre for Complexity Science. I was awarded a Leverhulme Visiting Professorship. My research activities are in complex networks, epidemic models, synchronization dynamics, and data science. Particularly, I am interested in studying how the network structure influences the evolution of dynamical processes, like synchronization of coupled oscillators or the spreading of disease in social networks. My current and previous projects can be found in this link. If you need further information on my research or are interested in collaboration with us, please don't hesitate to contact me.
