CCIS Vice-Dean Assistant for Grad Studies and Scientific Research
At the Grad Studies and Scientific Research (GSSR) division in the CCIS female branch, I manage three units, one for graduate students, the other for the college's demonstrators and those in scholarships abroad. The third unit is dedicated to scientific research. At the office, we focus on facilitating the communication between the college's departments and the Deanship of Graduate Studies and the Deanship of Scientific Research. We also, plan, organise and manage different events (talks and workshops) and gatherings that aim to enrich our faculty and graduate students with the skills, knowledge and exposure needed to excel in scientific research.

Thesis: Investigating Cascades in Social Networks: Structural and Temporal Aspects
The thesis topic falls under the intersection between data science, web science and network science. Precisely it looks into analysing the way information spreads on social networks, often recognised as an information diffusion process. The thesis studies cascades - the manifestation of the information diffusion process- from two different perspectives structural and temporal. The thesis also looks into analysing social network platforms’ functionality.
