Sara Venturini

I am a Postdoctoral fellow at the MIT Senseable City Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, mentored by Carlo Ratti and Paolo Santi.

I earned a Ph.D. in Computational Mathematics in 2023 from the University of Padova Italy, under the supervision of Prof. Francesco Rinaldi (University of Padova) and Prof. Francesco Tudisco (The University of Edinburgh, Gran Sasso Science Institute).

I enjoy working on the computational analysis of complex networks and their application to the real world. Therefore, I aim to leverage data to model and analyze social systems as well as interactions.
My research interests include: complex networks, optimization methods, machine learning, and the science of science.

In 2022 I won a fellowship within the AccelNet-Multinet exchange program, which allowed me to visit Indiana University Network Science Institute (IUNI) in Bloomington for 6 months to work with Prof. Santo Fortunato and Dr. Satyaki Sikdar.

I started my academic career with a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Mathematics at the University of Padova Italy.
