# Network Science: Modeling, Inference, and Reconstruction

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Network
and Data Science at the Central
European University (CEU), Vienna, Austria. I have
received
my Habilitation
in Theoretical Physics at
the University of Bremen in
2017. Previously, I have been an Assistant Professor in
Applied Mathematics at
the University of Bath (2016-2019), External Researcher
at the ISI Foundation (2015-2020), and
post-doc researcher at
the University of Bremen (2011-2016)
and
Technical University of Darmstadt (2008-2011).

My research lies at the interface between Statistical
Physics, Complex Systems,
Data Science,
Applied Mathematics,
and
Machine Learning, with a special focus on the theoretical
foundations of Network Science.
I focus on the development of principled and efficient methods
to extract scientific understanding from network data, as well
as the mathematical modeling of network behavior and
evolution, based on analytical tools and concepts
from Statistical
Physics, Information Theory,
and Bayesian Statistics.
