Among my research activities there are two main branches (but not limited to them and I'm always open to discussions). First one is focused on large networks (graphs) and algorithms on them. Here I'm interested in evolving, temporal networks and currently working on various subjects, including temporal communities detection, roles detection e.t.c. Second main branch deals with data analysis and models of human behavior with some goals in the traffic systems and disease spreading. To support this part of my research the LateForGood project (see below) has been launched.
In my everyday life I'm a very big fan (geek maybe? :) ) of all new electronics, gadgets and IT things and follow all appearing technologies, and if possible try them myself (in the picture on the right there is one of the first objects, I've printed in 3d). This part of my life contains not only "consuming" process, but also a development part on different levels: software production (including smartphones, but not limited to), custom microcontroller electronics creating, robotics and radio controlled flying hobby.
I've created many applications for various platforms, including iOS, Android, Bada and Windows Mobile, but here I want to focus on just two examples.
When I've just started working with different datasets, focused on human mobility, every dataset, I've succeeded to get access to, contained different limitations which I wanted to overcome for my particular goes. That's why we've decided to start our own data capturing campaign. Usually this process is an expensive one, but we've found a way: a free app, which can help users to legally get some money from the railway company in case of frequent train delays. So, a user gets financial benefits, but gives us some anonymous data. More information about the app and links to download it can be found on it's website. Here is just a short animation of an average working day in Belgium (circle's brightness represents in some way the amount of people in the neighbourhood region):
This app was created for the SonaLitté project, where each week you can find a new audio record of some person reading a creation (of all sorts). The Android app and later an iOS one were a kind of present for the first anniversary of the project. More information and download links are as usual on a separate page.
I like taking photo. All the photos in the background of this site are made by me :)
