Atlanta, GA (USA)
Dr. Munmun De Choudhury research interests are in the area of computational social science, wherein she is interested in questions around making sense of human behavior as manifested via our online social footprints. She is motivated by how the availability of large-scale online social data, coupled with computational methods and resources can help us answer fundamental questions relating to our social lives: our actions, interactions, emotions and linguistic expression, both from an individual perspective, at the same time, as part of a larger collective.

Dr. Petter Holme is an Associate Professor at the Department of Physics of Umeå University (Sweden). His research interests broadly cover areas of complex systems and complex networks, modeling biological and technological systems, digital epidemiology and disease spreading, theoretical ecology and population dynamics. He is particular interested in phenomena at the intersection between online systems and offline world.

Dr. Haewoon Kwak is an Associate Researcher at Telefonica Research, Barcelona (Spain). He received his Ph.D. from the CS Department at KAIST in summer 2011. His advisor is Sue Moon. In the autumn of 2007, he was visiting Telefónica I+D at Barcelona as an Intern. His research interests are in the social network analysis using large-scale data. More specifically, he focuses on the multi-level analysis, which are an individual level, a dyad level, a community level, and an entire network level. Each level has its own inherent, but complementary, resolution to capture what happens in it and guides us to understand the complex dynamics across multiple levels as a combination of phenomena.

Dr. Daniele Quercia is passionate about mining data to answer multidisciplinary research questions. From urban informatics to personality studies, he is exploring the complex relationship between our offline and online worlds at Yahoo! Labs in Barcelona. Previously, as Horizon researcher at the University of Cambridge, he was working on a grand challenge that aimed to transform our digital footprints into real-world services. His research lies at the intersection of data mining, social computing, urban informatics, computational social science, and web science. Before starting to work in Cambridge (UK), he lived in Cambridge (USA) where he was Postdoctoral Associate at MIT and worked on social networks in a city context. Before joining MIT, Daniele received his PhD from UC London, and his thesis was nominated for BCS Best British PhD dissertation in Computer Science.
