Vito D. P. Servedio
Vito D. P. Servedio is Data Scientist at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna, where his research is focused on data science and handling, computational linguistics, innovation and learning dynamics, complex networks, economic complexity, and ambient computing technologies.
Before joining CSH in October 2016, Vito was research fellow at the Italian National Research Council Institute of Complex Systems (ISC-CNR) and Sapienza University of Rome, where he worked in the field of complex systems with particular attention to social dynamics, information dynamics, and innovation dynamics.
An Italian citizen, Vito Servedio studied Physics at Sapienza University of Rome and received his PhD (with honors) from Dresden University of Technology in 2000. In Dresden, he continued his research for another three years as Post-Doc. In this period he collaborated with the Max Planck Institute and the Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research, mainly dealing with the calculation of the electronic structure of metal surfaces.
He moved to Sapienza University of Rome in 2003 where he started working on the physics of complex systems with particular attention to complex networks. He took part in the EU-projects COSIN, DELIS, and TAGORA and was the scientific coordinator of the Sapienza Unit for both the EU project EveryAware (Enhance Environmental Awareness through Social Information Technologies) and the Kreyon project funded by the John Templeton Foundation.
