Dino Pitoski is a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity of the University of Rijeka (AIRI), assistant lecturer at the Faculty of Informatics and Digital Technologies of University of Rijeka (INFRI), and a member of the Complex Networks Lab at AIRI and SemTech lab at INFRI. His current project, funded by the Young Universities for the Future of Europe (YUFE) alliance, primarily involves analysing human migration by means of Network Science (NS), and modelling migration using combinely the means of NS and statistics.
Using Network Science to explain migration: the case of Croatia
Dino’s talk will present recent findings on migration patterns within countries, obtained through a relatively new network science view on the phenomenon, which point to the desirable new research directions; both in terms of advancing methods of NS as a whole, and in terms of advancing the statistical methods typically used to analyse and explain human migration.
He will discuss these points with emphasis on the specific case of internal migration in Croatia, but will also make comparisons with other countries analysed.
