Small Changes, Big Changes

A very quick note to point out a tiny change in my website. The top banner that always welcomes you to the home page of this blog has been changed. It is an insignificant text difference, which hides a slightly larger one in my life. I’ve changed jobs! After six years of postdoc fellowship, I decided I had enough of it and made the big jump: I’m now an assistant professor. I’ve also decided to hop to a different side of the Atlantic pond. I left the United States and decided to make a home of Denmark. My new affiliation is the IT University of Copenhagen.

There are a few more things changing in the next weeks/months. The most important one is that I’ll start teaching the class on Network Analysis. This is a class for the first semester of the second year in the Bachelor program of Data Science. This Data Science ship is captained by the amazing Natalie Schluter. I’m not alone in this adventure: my friend Luca Rossi will be co-teaching with me this year. I look forward to give my contribution to the data science and network science development of the Copenhagen area.

This means that you’ll see soon a new tab in the top menu of the blog: “Teaching”. I’ll use it to host the materials from the classes I’ll be teaching: slides, additional texts, etc. This should allow you to get a hint of my lecturing style and — why not? — see if you can learn something new.

If you are in the Copenhagen area and you think you’d like to talk a bit of network business, you can probably find me at my new shiny office, while I try to hide behind the largest monitors I could find. The office number is 4E04, meaning that I’m at the 4th floor, wing E, office 4 (on the right).

Interesting times ahead!
