Speaker information

Dr Pawel Dlotko,DataShape Group (former Geometrica) Inria, Saclay, Orsay,A postdoc researcher at a DataShape group (former Geometrica) at Inria Saclay, working on a Gudhi project under supervision of Jean-Daniel Boissonnat and Frederic Chazal. Previously, from January 2013 till January 2015 he was a postdoctoral researcher at University of Pennsylvania in Robert Ghrist's group. Before that, from 2011 till 2013 he was an assistant professor at Jagiellonian University in Krakow in Mariam Mrozek's group.

Francisco Belchi Guillamon,Kiko, Southampton,A researcher in applied mathematics, geometry and topology

Dr Matteo Rucco,IMATI, The Institute for Applied Mathematics and Information Technologies, Genoa,Data analysis specialist. Matteo Rucco is a research fellow at the Italian National Council of Research, Institute of Applied Mathematics and Information Technologies. In 2016 he earned his PhD in Computer Science, specializing in Topological Data Analysis for Modeling Complex Systems, at University of Camerino under the supervision of Prof. E. Merelli.

Conrad D'Souza,Institute for Web Science and Centre for Risk Research, University of Southampton,Conrad D'Souza, University of Southampton, Conrad is a Web Science PhD student working jointly with Mathematics and the Centre for Risk Research. His research aims to develop new analytical tools for exploring data by studying the shape of data and demonstrate the economic value of understanding data through this paradigm.
