Born in Salerno (Italy), I earned my PhD in Computer Science at University of Pisa with the thesis "Human Mobility, Social Networks and Economic Development: a Data Science perspective". In my research, I exploit the power of Big Data to study many aspects of human behavior: the patterns of human mobility, the structure and evolution of complex networks, the patterns of success in sports, and the usage of data-driven measures of human behavior to monitor and predict the economic development of countries, cities, and territories.

Paolo Cintia and Luca Pappalardo have joined the conversation on sports at Radio Aula 40 talking about sports analytics.

Luca Pappalardo talks about the recent publication on Nature at Smart City Radio24.
