Matteo Zignani

Matteo Zignani is a postdoctoral researcher. My research interests focus on the development of models and tools for the analysis of temporal and multilayered networks characterizing communication and online social networks. Currently my activity concerns the detection and the analysis of burst of activity in multilayered social networks, the analysis of people's identity in multilayered social media and the characterization of the interplay between social networks and the moder urban mobility.
