Welcome to my professional home page. I am Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics at the Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of São Paulo, and leader of the Complex Systems Group. My research activities are in complex systems, complex networks, epidemic models, synchronization of coupled oscillators and data mining. I am mainly interested in determining how the network organization influences the properties and evolution of dynamical processes. For instance, how patterns of connections in social networks affect the propagation of diseases and rumors. My group also develops new methods for data mining and pattern recognition based on graph theory. Current and previous projects can be found in this link . If you need further information or are interested in collaboration with us, please don't hesitate to contact me.
