June 14, 2011 - Marta C. Gonzalez ntegrates methods of complex systems with statistical physics approaches, computational sciences, geographic information systems and network theory to characterize and model human dynamics. Her current research explores human mobility patterns using mobile phone communication, propagation of mobile phone viruses and urban transportation models. Her work also addresses the analysis of networks' organization in relation to their attributes in social systems and spreading dynamics.
González received the Licentiate in physics, from the Universidad Simon Bolivar in 1999, the Magister Sc. in physics, from Central University of Venezuela in 2001, and earned her Ph.D. in physics (Dr. rer. nat), at Stuttgart Univarsität in 2006. (source: http://mitworld.mit.edu/speaker/view/1216)
