Research interests

At the Turing, Gerardo is working on developing complex network approaches to modelling of conflicts. Within the GUARD project in collaboration with Weisi Guo and Alan Wilson he is developing a non-linear dynamical model of conflicts implemented on multiplexed complex networks. Starting from a global geospatial networks of cities and adding layers of political, economic and cultural interactions between the cities the model can be trained on past conflict data to predict new ones. The project aims at developing a platform for predicting conflicts, individuate causal factors and inform preventive policies.
