Networks and proximities

The world is relational. The vast majority of objects and subjects are embedded in complex relational structures, commonly called “networks”. My research focuses on knowledge networks, i.e. networks with the objective of knowledge and information diffusing between individual actors, organisations, and regions. I am particularly invested in understanding why networks show specific structures, what factors are determine these, how do they evolve over time, and to what extent they matter economically. In the following, I list a selection of core results of my research.
