Networks Resilience

Recent collaborations with my colleagues at Beijer Institute, Princeton and Posdam Institute have constantly bring me back to the topic of how is resilience understood from a network perspective. While resilience scholars constantly remind us that network structure are a key feature of resilient systems (e.g. modularity) [e.g. Biggs]; very little is know on what is the functional form between these qualitative claims and the actual resilience of systems. For example, if I give you a dataset consisting of 100 cities with a plethora of networks metrics already measured for you, could you figure out which city is more resilient?

Quantifying cascading effects in trade networks

This talk showcases the use of convergent cross mapping to detect teleconnections and potential cascading effects between resource systems in trade networks.
