Andreia Sofia Teixeira


I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at Indiana University Bloomington, in the Center for Social and BioMedical Complexity and a Fellow at IU Network Science Institute (IUNI).

I am also a member of the advisory board of yrCSS, a member of the Local Committee and the Social Media Chair of The 8th International Conference on Complex Networks and Their Applications and one of the organisers of the Workshop Complexity72h 2020.

I have a PhD in Information Systems and Computer Engineering, that was done under the supervision of Alexandre P. Francisco and Francisco C. Santos, from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Universidade de Lisboa (Portugal).

I have been a junior researcher at IDSS group/INESC-ID since 2010 and a member of the ATP group since 2016. I was also a collaborator at LASIGE from September 2018 to August 2019.

My research interests are:

  • Graph Theory / Algorithms on Graphs
  • Network Science / Complex Systems
  • Computational Social Sciences
  • Computational Biology
  • Evolutionary Game Theory / Modelling Human Behaviour

My research work is focused on the development of computational models and simulation frameworks to understand collective dynamics, specifically in what concerns the evolution of biological and social systems. If you want to work with me just email me 🙂 

In 2017 (June and July), I was also as an invited junior researcher in Kyushu University, Japan, contributing to the the BIRD’s Research Project in Task 1 – Algorithms for Sequence Analysis – and Task 2 – Compression and Indexing Techniques for Repetitive Data.
