Francisco C. Santos

I am Associate Professor of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), University of Lisbon (Portugal).

I am a senior researcher at the Group on Artificial Intelligence for People and Society (GAIPS) part of INESC-ID. I am also co-head of the interdisciplinary group ATP.

I am interested in applying and developing scientific computing and modelling tools to understand collective dynamics in social and life sciences. I have been working on problems related to the evolution of cooperation, human social norms, network science, and environmental governance, among others.

I obtained a PhD in Computer Science from the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). I have worked at IRIDIA-ULB, MLG-ULB, CENTRIA/Universidade Nova de Lisboa, CMAF/Universidade de Lisboa, and INESC-ID.
