Vita

Fariba Karimi is a research scientist at GESIS - the Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences (Germany) since March 2015. She received her PhD degree in physics specialized in computational science from Umea University in 2015. Her PhD thesis was about spreading processes in networks and especially in temporal networks. Prior to that, she received her master degree in physics from Lund University in 2010.

She is an active member of German Physics Society (DPG) and a member of Complex System Society Council [Link].

Forschung

The focus of her research is on applying network theory to address societal challenges. Currently she is investigating the impact of network structure on the ranking, visibility of groups and minorities and perception biases. In addition, she is analyzing network structure of academic collaboration with regards to gender differences and academic success.
