On Monday, September 17, 2018, I started to work as a visiting scientist at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission in Ispra, Italy. Over the next weeks and months, I will collaborate with Michele Vespe and Lorenzo Gabrielli in an exciting transdisciplinary project on cross-border air traffic and human mobility. More information to follow.
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.
