Samuel Martin-Gutierrez


PostDoc at the CSH

Samuel Martin-Gutierrez has been a PostDoc at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna since May 2021. He also collaborates with the Grupo de Sistemas Complejos (Complex Systems Group) at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.

 

Samuel studied physics at Universidad de Valladolid and Universidad de Granada in Spain. During his master in complex systems at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid he investigated the relationship between agricultural activities and communication and mobility patterns in Senegal, using mobile phone data.

 

For his PhD thesis, Samuel used techniques from network and data science to analyse multiple datasets of online user behaviour obtained from social contexts where polarization may arise.

 

Samuel’s main research interest is the study of collective human behavior, which he approaches from two perspectives: big scale data-driven analysis and development of models to reproduce the behavioral patterns found in those analyses. He is especially interested in studying the emergence of inequalities and polarization in social systems.

 

At the CSH, Samuel will mainly work with Fariba Karimi on computational social science and network inequality.
