frbkrm CV

I am a group leader in Computational Social Science at Complexity Science Hub Vienna and a tenure-track assistant professor of “Complexity Science for Societal Good” at the Informatics faculty, Technical University of Vienna (TU Wien). 

My current research focuses on computational and network approaches for addressing societal challenges such as gender disparities in collaboration and citation networks, visibility of minorities in social and technical systems, algorithmic biases, and sampling hard-to-reach groups. In addition, I focus on variety of social processes using network theoretic approach such as emergence of culture in Wikipedia, spreading of information and norms, and perception biases by using mathematical models, digital traces and online experiments.


I received my PhD from Umea University in 2015. I have written my thesis entitled “Tightly Knit: Spreading processes in temporal networks” under the supervision of Prof. Petter Holme and Prof. Martin Rosvall.

During my PhD and postdoc I have carried out several international collaborations and research visits, including visiting researcher at Keio University (Oct. 2018), Integrated Science Laboratory (Icelab), Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science (DTU) and ISI foundation.
