Welcome to my webpage. Here you will find some personal data, information about my research and my scientific publications. In case you have further inquiries, do not hesitate to contact me.


I am postdoctoral researcher in the Institute of Complex Systems (UBICS) and in the Department of Condensed Matter Physics of the Faculty of Physics, both at the University of Barcelona.

Prior to this appointment, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Bruno Kessler Foundation, in Trento, Italy. There I was involved first in the Complex Multilayer Networks Lab, led by Prof. Manlio De Domenico, and later in the Complex Human Behavior (CHuB) Lab, led by Dr. Riccardo Gallotti.
I have a PhD in Physics (2020) from the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems (IFISC). There I worked under the supervision of Dr. José J. Ramasco and Prof. Maxi San Miguel on topics related to the collective dynamics of social and socio-technical systems. I have a MSc in Physics of Complex Systems from IFISC and a BSc in Physics from the University of Barcelona.
My name, Oriol, is pronounced /u.ɾiˈɔɫ/ or /o.ɾiˈɔɫ/. It derives from the Latin words aureolus/aureus (golden). That is why I share my name with this yellow bird.

Research interests

My scientific interests, and the research that I conduct, orbit around Complex Systems and Network Science.
In my research I use analytical and computational techniques borrowed from statistical physics and stochastic processes. To bring theory and applications together, I integrate these approaches with the analysis of large data sets, frequently coming from sociol-technical systems, but not only. A summarized list of interests comprises:

Besides this list, I have a bent on innovative interdisciplinary problems. Whenever possible, I try to orientate my research on those directions.

Theme Issue on Emergence

Alongside with Manlio De Domenico, we have recently guest-edited the Theme Issue "Emergent phenomena in complex physical and sociotechnical systems: from cells to societies" in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A. It includes 16 contributions from world-leading experts on the concept of Emergence, the hallmark of complexity science, from a modern and interdisciplinary viewpoint. Check out here our introduction to the Theme Issue, where we provide a short review on the topic and outline the content of the issue. Click on the image below to access the contents.
