Filipi N. Silva
Filipi N. Silva joined IUNI in June as an Assistant Research Scientist after working for a year as a visiting scholar at the School of Informatics, Computing & Engineering (SICE-IU). Filipi received his Ph. D. in Physics at the São Carlos Institute of Physics (University of São Paulo). His primary research interests include studying and implementing new techniques for analyzing, modeling, and understanding real-world systems through a joint combination of complex networks, machine learning, and data visualization. These approaches have been applied to a wide range of scientific areas, including bioinformatics, text analysis, science of science, information science, and urban networks.
His current research focus is on developing a new set of interactive network visualization tools for researchers and on studying the structure and dynamics of scientific fields over time.
