Michele Coscia is currently an associate researcher at CID and assistant professor at the IT University of Copenhagen (ITU). He joined the Center for International Development's Growth Lab as a Research Fellow in 2011.

Michele obtained his Master in Digital Humanities (2008) and his PhD in Computer Science (2012) from the University of Pisa. He then spent seven months conducting research at Northeastern University's Center for Complex Network Research, led by Albert-Laszlo Barabasi.

He is trained in data mining and his research is focused primarily on Complex Network analysis, particularly on multidimensional networks, i.e. networks expressing multiple different relations at the same time. At CID, his research focuses on human mobility and its relationship to the diffusion of knowledge and as a barrier to economic inclusion. At ITU, he focuses on developing new algorithms for network analysis and on the critical evaluation of their state of the art.
