Ana was a PhD student at IMT Lucca in the Networks research unit directed by Prof. Guido Caldarelli, and a fellow member of the Laboratory of Computational Social Science (CSSLab) coordinated by Walter Quattrociocchi. Her current research focuses on the consumption and spreading patterns of news on social networks. She studied Computer Systems Engineering at the Universidad Nacional del Sur (Argentina), where she graduated in 2014.
Fabiana got her PhD at IMT Lucca in Computer, Decision and Systems Science track (XXIX cycle) under the research unit of Networks directed by Prof. Guido Caldarelli, and she was fellow member of the Laboratory of Computational Social Science (CSSLab) coordinated by Walter Quattrociocchi. Her research interests are focused on data mining techniques for social dynamics and rumor spreading. In her work she collects and analyzes data from online social networks aiming at discovering patterns of individual and group behaviours.
Gianna was a post-doc researcher at IMT Institute for Advanced Studies (Lucca), in the framework of the EU FET Integrated Project MULTIPLEX #317532. She obtained her M.S in Environmental and Medical Physics (Summa cum Laude) at the University of Turin, where she also got her Ph.D. in Physics (topics: paleoclimatic reconstructions; advanced spectral analysis). She was at IFSI/INAF; at ISI Foundation, where she won a CRT Foundation Lagrange Scholarship co-funded by INFN and A.O.U. San Luigi G.; and at INFN in the framework of RDH Project (Research and Development in Hadrontherapy).  Her research interest are: (1) Advanced time-series analysis applied to geophysics, macroeconomics, biological systems; complex networks in biology; (2) Paleoclimatology and climate change; meteorites and cosmogenic radionuclides (gamma-ray spectroscopy); extreme events analysis (volcanic records) (3) Medical physics (hadrotherapy and BNCT, TPS).
  Juan is a physicist, born in 1979 in Corral de Bustos, Cordoba, Argentina. He studied Physics at FaMAF, University of Cordoba, Argentina. Then, he worked as a PhD candidate, fully financed by the Argentine National Research Council (CONICET), until he defended his PhD thesis ("Stability as a Mechanism of Natural Selection on Interaction Networks in Biological Systems") at the University of Cordoba in 2006. Later, after completing one year postdoc at FaMAF, with a Fellowship from CONICET also, he moved to Aalto University, Espoo, Finland, to work as a postdoctoral researcher under the supervision of Dr. Prof. Jari Saramaki, where he spend two years studying and working on temporal networks. Currently, he is working as a postdoc at IMT Institute for Advanced Studies, in Lucca, withing the NETWORKS Research Unit, since November of 2014. His main interest comprehend the study of the physics of complex systems and complex networks, combining theory with applications. He left NETWORKS for a Professorship in Cordoba, Argentina.  
Michela was a PhD candidate at IMT Lucca in the Computer, Decision, and Systems Science track (XXIX cycle). She was fellow member of the Laboratory of Computational Social Science (CSSLab) at IMT Lucca, under Networks Unit. Her current research at IMT focuses on complex networks, and in particular on the analysis  and modelling of information diffusion and opinion dynamics on online social network. She studied Mathematics at the University of Rome La Sapienza where she received her M.Sc. in 2013 
  Mika is a theoretical physicist from Berlin, Germany, who joined the Networks group in November 2014 as a PhD student. He obtained a Master's Degree in Physics and Astrophysics cum laude from the University of Florence. The main results of his thesis on the nonlinear dynamics and transport properties of the one-dimensional Fermi-Pasta-Ulam chain have been published in Physical Review E. Within the Networks group, he currently focuses on economic networks and formulation of statistical null models for bipartite networks. He pursues the application of his findings to international trade in order to develop sustainable development strategies.
  Walter obtained the Master Degree in Computer Science (Summa cum Laude) at the University of Parma and the Phd in Logic and Computer Science at the University of Siena. His research interests include dynamic networks, graph algorithms, and dynamic processes on complex networks. Recently, his work has focused on the modeling of social phenomena occurring on complex networks (i.e. social contagion, information diffusion, opinions formation and revision, social imitation). 
Young-Ho is a brilliant physicist who stayed for a couple of years at  IMT. Interested in network modelling and statistical physics he worked on the analysis of statistical properties of social networks. He left NETWORKS for a Professorship in Glasgow, Scotland UK.
