After a PhD in Physics at ULB, and Post-docs at ULg, UCLouvain and Imperial College, I have been professor the department of Mathematics of the University of Namur. I am currently associate professor in the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford. My recent research includes the development of algorithms to uncover information in large-scale networks, the study of empirical data in social and biological systems, and the mathematical modelling of human mobility and diffusion on networks. I have authored more than 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings. I also act as an academic editor for PLoS One and the European Physical Journal B.
