  • I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Information Technology at Uppsala University and a member of the Uppsala University Information Laboratory (UU-InfoLab). I got my PhD from the Technical University of Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain, in 2015.

    My research has an interdisciplinary and practical perspective at the intersection of computational social science / social computing, network science and mechanism design. I am particularly interested in applying large-scale digital data analysis techniques to study problems with social implications through the lens of human information networks.

    Currently, I am working on projects related to:

    1. Studying online communication and its influence on our collective opinions, ideas and human decision making,
    2. Developing computational models and methods to detect online information disorders in the Nordic countries.
