The paper "Dissecting global air traffic data to discern different types and trends of transnational mobility", co-authored with Lorenzo Gabrielli, Ettore Recchi, Frabrizio Natale, and Michele Vespe and published in EPJ Data Science, won the American Sociological Assocation's Global and Transnational Sociology Best Paper Prize for an International Scholar this year. The paper is available open access.
My article "The Spatial Structure of Transnational Human Activity", recently published in Social Science Research, received the BIGSSS Best Paper Award 2016 last Monday. The award, which is offered annually by the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences, was endowed with 500 Euros. I donated the money to Sea-Watch.org, an NGO that works hard to save refugees in distress at sea in the Mediterranean.
