Eszter Bokányi

Eszter Bokányi is a research postdoc in the POPNET project investigating a population-scale social network of the Netherlands.

She has a background in physics, and graduated with a PhD from statistical physics at Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest. The topic of her thesis was already rather connected to computational social science, having investigated a huge database of geolocated Twitter messages.

Nowadays, she is still mostly interested in spatial social networks and their connection to human mobility, as well as dynamical phenomena such as the spreading of innovations over these social networks.
