rathin's Bio

I am a PhD student with the FIRE doctoral school at the CRI. My project is to use data driven methods to understand organisation, performance, learning in teams and open innovation communities. For this purpose, I focus on digital traces from the iGEM synthetic biology competition, open source repositories on github and self-organised communities tacking the SDGs. I work with Marc Santolini and the research team at the Interaction Data Lab.

I have a masters in Theoretical Computer Science and previous experiences working with phylogenetic and protein interaction networks. My research interests lie at the intersection of network science and social phenomena - particularly exploring how interactions can shape behaviour.

I enjoy following football and I am keen to explore innovation in sport as a bridge between my research and hobbies. In addition, I like cooking, experimenting with new cuisines, hiking and exploring the countryside.
