Alberto Aletá

Dr. Alberto Aletá is a Spanish physicist and data scientist expert on the field of Complex Systems. He is mostly known for his work on epidemic modelling, specially during the Covid-19 pandemic. However, his interests are very interdisciplinary, with contributions in fields like game theory, sustainable nutrition and social dynamics.

Alberto’s work is characterised by the use of data driven approaches to model dynamical systems and a quest for unraveling the causal mechanisms behind the dynamics observed. His works often rely on the use of agent based models, network science, higher order networks and multivariate statistics.

Alberto obtained his PhD in Physics (Cum Laude) from the Universidad of Zaragoza in 2019 and then he did a postdoc stay at ISI Foundation (Torino, Italy) until 2022. Recently he has been granted a Ramón y Cajal fellowship and is currently working at the Instituto Universitario de Investigación de Biocomputación y Física de Sistemas Complejos (BIFI).

Andreia Sofia Teixeira

Andreia Sofia Teixeira is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Informatics at the Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon, and a Researcher at LASIGE, where she teaches in the domains of Complex Data Analysis and Machine Learning. Beyond her academic roles, she is an active member of scientific societies, including the Network Science Society’s Executive Committee, the council of the Complex Systems Society, and the role of General Secretary within the Women in Network Science Society.

Sofia’s research journey began with a focus on graph theory and network analysis from an edge-centric perspective moving towards developing measures, computational models, and simulation frameworks to unravel the intricate structure and dynamics of complex data and collective behavior within complex systems.

Luce Prignano

Dr. Luce Prignano is the project manager at NGO Heurística, overseeing research, scientific communication, and interdisciplinary educational projects. She maintains collaborations with a broad spectrum of academic institutions, NGOs, and public organizations.

Holding a PhD in Physics, Luce is currently affiliated with the Complex Systems Lab Barcelona (ClabB) and the University of Barcelona Institute of Complex Systems (UBICS). Her initial foray into transdisciplinary research was at the Catalan Institute of Human Paleoecology and Social Evolution (IPHES), where she learned to cooperate with professionals from diverse academic and scientific backgrounds.

Her research adopts methodologies from Statistical Physics, Complex Systems, and Network Science to analyze past societies and explore the dynamics of human interactions.

Marta Sales Pardo

Marta Sales-Pardo obtained a PhD in Physics from Universitat de Barcelona. She did her postdoctoral work at Northwestern University, where she was the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship and later she became a Research Assistant Professor at the Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Science Institute with joint appointments in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and the Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems. In 2009 she moved to Universitat Rovira i Virgili where she is now a Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and coleads the SEES lab with Roger Guimerà.

In 2013 and 2021 she received an ICREA Acadèmia Award for her excellence in research. From 2019 until 2021 she was member of the Advisory Board of the McDonnell Foundation. Since 2021 she is a Fellow of the Network Science Society. Since July 2022 she is the president of the Catalan Complex Systems Society.
