About the lecturer

Prof. Ginestra Bianconi at Queen Mary University of London and The Alan Turing Institute (UK)

Prof Ginestra Bianconi
Ginestra Bianconi is Professor of Applied Mathematics in the School of Mathematical Sciences of Queen Mary University of London and a Turing Fellow at The Alan Turing Institute. Currently she is Chief Editor of JPhys Complexity, Editor of PloSOne, and Scientific Reports, and Associate Editor of Chaos, Solitons and Fractals.

Her research activity on statistical mechanics and network science includes network theory and its interdisciplinary applications. She has formulated the Bianconi-Barabasi model that displays the Bose-Einstein condensation in complex networks. She has worked in network entropy and network ensembles and on dynamical processes on networks. In the last years she has been focusing on multilayer networks, network geometry and topology, percolation and network control. Ginestra is the author of the book 'Multilayer Networks: Structure and Function' by Oxford University Press.

Ginestra's research interests fall in the realm of applied mathematics and network science, with e.g. applications to neuroscience. Her research covers different aspects of the field including the statistical modelling of networks and the formulation of advanced information theory methods to extract relevant information from network data. Her major contributions include works that mathematically model complex systems and  predict their functional behaviour. Recently her research focus is on on generalised network structures including multilayer networks and simplicial complexes.
