Profile

Enzo is a Lecturer in the Complex Systems and Networks Group. His research is focused on the structure and dynamics of networks, and in particular on the characterisation and modelling of processes on multilayer and multiplex networks. He has been working on random walks, synchronisation, diffusion and opinion dynamics on networks, on growth models for time-varying and multi-layer networks, and on applications of network science to spatial systems, in particular cities and the human brain. He is currently a member of the Council and of the Executive Committee of the Complex Systems Society.
