Alessandro Muscoloni  Ph.D.

Assistant Professor, Tsinghua Laboratory of Brain and Intelligence (THBI)
Center for Complex Network Intelligence (CCNI)
Tsinghua University, Beijing, China

Dr. Muscoloni is Assistant Professor at THBI and is involved in several projects at the Center for Complex Network Intelligence. Current research integrates notions from machine learning and network science in order to develop models of network organization, for analysis and prediction in complex physical systems, such as brain networks. He contributes to theoretical aspects of the research and he deals with the computational realization, such as algorithmic design, implementation and optimization for big data analysis.
