My research interest is network science (also called social network analysis or complex networks). I lead the Leiden Computational Network Science Lab, focussing on methods and algorithms for knowledge discovery from (social) network data. My focus is in particular on higher order patterns such as network communities and network motifs.
Through various projects, I also work on real-world applications, e.g., online social networks, online media, criminal networks, corporate networks, networks in finance, economics, science and infrastructure.
