The CHUB Flagship project is an ecosystems of leading researchers on human behavior involving FBK researchers and international scientific partners.
The Complex Multilayer Networks (CoMuNe) Lab is the FBK Research Unit supporting the CHUB Flagship project.

FBK Researchers

Pierluigi Sacco


My background is in economics and game theory, and I am mainly interested in interdisciplinary approaches to human behavior, with a special attention toward the cultural dimension.

I study integrated Complex Systems (biological, socio-technical, communication and economic networks) and their complex dynamics, to understand how multiplexity and interdependencies lead to emergent collective phenomena and resilience to perturbations.

Riccardo Gallotti

Senior Researcher

I am an interdisciplinary physicist working on the data-informed statistical modelling of individual and collective behavior.

My research focuses on human mobility, decision making, transportation, and data science.

Valeria D’Andrea

Postdoctoral Researcher

I am a physicist with a wide experience in data analysis and modeling, Complex Systems, Machine Learning and Information Theory.
