The primary goal of GOTHAM lab gravitates around theoretical and computational aspects of complex systems, with main focus on data-driven modeling of empirical systems and the analysis of collective behaviors.
Our interests are widely interdiciplinar and cover scientific fields such as Epidemiology, Ecology, Systems biology, Neuroscience and Social sciences.
Our main modeling tools require the use of techniques from Statistical and Computational physics, Nonlinear dynamics, Network Science and Big Data analysis.
In a nutshell, our aim is to shed light on the basic mechanisms and interactions that shape the behavior of real-world complex systems.
Contagions in metapopulations with different mobility patterns corresponding to diverse socioeconomic classes.
Uncovering the hidden multilayer structure of complex networks by detecting the non-Markovian signatures of random walkers.
Here we unveil a counterintuitive phenomenon in disease spreading: Mobility may detriment epidemics.
What are the key factors that explain cultural transmission across ages? Is the secret behind ancient social networks?
GOTHAM lab is attached to the Institute for Biocomputation and Physics of Complex Systems (BIFI) at the University of Zaragoza, Zaragoza (Spain).
