Short Bio

Alessia Antelmi is a Computer Science assistant professor (RTD-A) at the University of Turin, where she joined the parallel computing research group. She received her Ph.D. with honors in Computer Science at the University of Salerno with a thesis on modeling and analyzing diffusion phenomena in real-world systems with high-order networks. Alessia has been a visiting researcher at the Data Science Institute (Galway, Ireland) and IT University of Copenhagen (Copenhagen, Denmark).

Her research interests span from complex systems, to agent-based modeling and simulation, to online user behavior.
