Research project: 
DExDyN (Data-driven Exploration of Dynamical Networks)
Summary of the research project: 

The present proposal aims at developing exploratory visual frameworks that are capable of conveying both the social and the dynamical aspects of digitally-represented activity records from mobile devices and wearable sensors. The goal is to overcome the static nature of traditional representations by leveraging dynamical quantities and exposing interactions and patterns over time, in a way that effectively supports reasoning on these complex data sources.

The proposal will address this challenge bridging the gap between the complex networks perspective and the design perspective, where visual communication - and in particular the language of cartography - acquires a role complementary to textual communication.
