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.

Personal data

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.

Currently I am working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Bruno Kessler Foundation, in Trento, Italy. In short, this is the journey that has taken me here:
I was born and grew up in Barcelona. I decided to study Physics at the University of Barcelona. After my bachelor, I moved to Mallorca to pursue a master degree on Physics of Complex Systems at the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems (IFISC). I continued the research of my master thesis as a PhD student, at IFISC as well. Along this period, I worked under the supervision of Dr. José J. Ramasco and Prof. Maxi San Miguel on topics related to the dynamics and the collective phenomena of social and socio-technical systems, defending my PhD thesis in September 2020. At the Bruno Kessler Foundation I worked until December 2021 in the Complex Multilayer Networks Lab, led by Prof. Manlio De Domenico. Since January 2022, I have been working in the Complex Human Behavior (CHub) Lab, led by Dr. Riccardo Galloti.

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.
