Sabrina Gaito

Sabrina Gaito received a degree in Physics in 1996, a Master Degree in Material Science in 1998 and a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics in 2002 from the University of Milano, Italy.

She is currently Assistant Professor  at the same University, where she teaches Social Media Mining and Computer Networks.

Her research activity takes place within both the network science, with a focus on complex network theory applied to social networking, human mobility and behaving, and the network technology, with a focus on ad hoc networks and mobile applications.
