I am a Ph.D. student in the Networks and Operating Systems group, under the supervision of Dr Cecilia Mascolo.
I am funded by Google, as a recipient of the Google European Doctoral Fellowship in Mobile Computing.

My Ph.D. research is focused on how geographic location and places shape relationships and groups in social networks, online and offline. Not only is this interesting in itself from a sociological perspective, but given the huge popularity of online social networks particularly among mobile users, it seems that their geographic characteristics could be used to benefit such services and applications.
