Dr Federico Botta

Research Fellow in Data Science


Research Interests

Federico's research focuses on complex social systems and is aimed at providing a deeper understanding of how such systems behave. Technological devices, such as smart phones, and technological systems, such as the Internet, provide an unprecedented source of information on human behaviour and his work focuses on investigating how people interact with these systems.

Using different tools ranging from network theory to physical and computer sciences, Federico analyses large data sets to study social systems and human behaviour.

Biography

I am a Research Fellow in the Data Science Lab at Warwick Business School. My research aims to provide a deeper understanding of human behaviour, both at the collective and individual level, by using novel data streams. Large data sets are constantly being generated thanks to our interactions with large technological systems, such as the Internet and the mobile phone network, or they can be collected through our usage of smart phone apps and tracking sensors. I use tools from data science, network theory, behavioural and computational social sciences to analyse these data sets and investigate different aspects of human behaviour.

I am also an organiser of Databeers Warwick, an informal networking event for all those interested in data stories.
