I am associate researcher at the Millennium Institute for Research on Data Foundations, and principal investigator of the National Center of Artificial Intelligence CENIA. My work focuses on developing artificial intelligence methods to measure and anticipate events and processes in which humans participate. Among these events, I highlight the spread of information, the territorial disposition of humans in cities, the formation of communities, and the virtuous and destructive interactions between people. In addition, I am interested in disinformation diffusion processes, virtuous and destructive.
