Modelling human behaviour and cognition with network science
Hosted by ISTAR Complexity and Computational Modelling Research Group, CCM Talks is a regular event with invited guests to share and discuss their work with the Iscte Community.
In the first edition of CCM Talks, Sofia Teixeira**, form Hospital da Luz Learning Health, will present the talk "Modelling human behaviour and cognition with network science".
Networks are a simple and intuitive framework to model evolutionary events, human behaviour and cognition. In this talk, I will walk you through two network science approaches to evaluate how centrality and neighborhood structure can be key to infer collective behaviour in two different case studies: eliciting collective fairness in a multiplayer bargaining game, and reconstructing the mindset expressed in multiple suicide notes.
**Sofia Teixeira holds a PhD in Information Systems and Computer Engineering from Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa (Portugal). Currently, she works as a research scientist at Hospital da Luz Learning Health in Lisbon. Previously, she was a postdoc at Indiana University and a junior researcher at the Instituto de Engenharia de Sistemas e Computadores - INESC-ID (at the Information & Decision Support Systems group).Sofia's research interests include modelling and analyzing complex systems through the development of new algorithms on graphs and the application of network science and machine learning methods. Her fields of interest, among others, are Human Behavior, Computational Social Sciences, Network Medicine, Cognitive Science, Network Neuroscience, and Computational Epidemiology.
