I am Giulia Pullano, and I am a postdoctoral fellow at Georgetown University in the Biology Department. I work in the Bansal Lab under the mentorship of Professor Shweta Bansal. My current research activity is focused on modeling the spread of infectious diseases using mobility and social contact data through mathematical frameworks.
I completed my Ph.D in 2021 in Public Health, specialty in biomathematics at Sorbonne Université and INSERM. I was supervised by Dr. Vittoria Colizza with a PhD thesis sponsored by Orange Labs titled "Epidemics and Human Mobility". I obtained a Masters degree in 2016 in Physics of Complex Systems at Università degli Studi di Torino, Turin, Italy and a bachelors degree in 2014 in Physics at Università degli Studi di Roma "La Sapienza", Rome, Italy.
