After a Bachelor’s Degree in Physics at “La Sapienza” University of Rome, Giulia Pullano got a Master's Degree in Physics of Complex Systems at University of Turin in 2017. She undertook a Master internship in collaboration with ISI Foundation investigating the dynamics behind the emergence of novelties and innovation. Since December 2017 she joined EPIcx Lab as a PhD student supervised by Dott. Vittoria Colizza.
Giulia’s current research activity is focused on modeling the social and mobility dimensions in the 2014 West Africa Ebola virus epidemic through mobile phone data. The purpose of a retrospective study of the Ebola virus epidemic is to get a better understanding on the role of human mobility, social networks, and behavioral adaptation to the epidemic. The empirical analysis of her research is based on the study of sets of anonymized mobile phone data collected by Orange in less-developed countries affected by the outbreak.
