Our team's activity ranges from the understanding of social dynamics concerning information diffusion and behavioral changes, to resilience of mobility networks. I was involved in several task forces to support important societal challenges such as misinformation diffusion, epidemics containment and hate speech, using data science.
We are open for thesis at the Master Level about:
- Social Media, Polarization and Echo Chambers evolution https://about.fb.com/news/2018/01/effect-social-media-democracy/
- Coordianted Inauthentic Behavior https://about.fb.com/news/2018/12/inside-feed-coordinated-inauthentic-behavior/
