Personal Data:

I finished the BSc and the MSc in Physics by the University of Cantabria located in Santander,
Spain, in 1997 and the PhD, by the same university, in 2002. During that period, I worked in
the Statistical Physics group of IFCA .

After the PhD, I moved a little: A first postdoc in Oporto (Portugal) at the Centro de Fisica do
, a center belonging to the University of Porto, and a second one in Atlanta (Georgia, USA)
in Stefan Boettcher's group at the Physics Department of Emory University. Then, for five years,
I have been a research scientist at the ISI Foundation in Turin, Italy.

Nowadays, I am a Research Professor (Profesor de Investigación) of the Spanish National Research Council CSIC
working at the IFISC (Insitute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems) in Palma
de Mallorca, Spain.

Research Topics:

My interests lie in the general field of Complexity. In particular, in the study of Complex Networks
and their use to better understand real world complex systems. More specifically my research
topics are the following:

Complex networks
Network Structure Inference
Internet use and Online Social Networks
Epidemic spreading
Transport and spatial systems


These are some of the projects in which I am or have been working recently:

  • INSIGHT is a FP7 European project to analyze and model land use in cities:

    • OSLOM and network clustering in statistically significant communites:
