Andreia Sofia Teixeira


I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at Indiana University Bloomington, in the Center for Social and BioMedical Complexity; a Fellow at IU Network Science Institute (IUNI), Indiana, United States; a Visitor PostDoc at Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Oeiras, Portugal, in the Complex Adaptive Systems and Computational Biology group; and a Collaborator of INESC-ID.

I am also a member of the Complex Systems Society Council; the Secretary of the advisory board of yrCSS; and one of the organisers of the Workshop Complexity72h 2020.

I have a PhD in Information Systems and Computer Engineering from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Universidade de Lisboa (Portugal). Between September 2018 – August 2019 I was an Invited Assistant Professor at the Department of Informatics of Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa (FCUL).

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

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.

My research interests are:

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

My research work is focused on the development of measures, computational models and simulation frameworks to understand collective dynamics, more specifically in what concerns the evolution and behavior of complex systems.
