We are fascinated by the way the machines have affected human connectedness, and by the increase of a modern social space due to an impressive flurry of online social networks. This point, where the technology meets and influences human interactions, ideas and emotions, inspires our research.
Using the social network analysis foundations, we model current social phenomena from various aspects and search for their causes, explanations and consequences. Complementary, we also search for new methods to influence the social structures and their behaviour given their character and dynamics, and to design new social politics in different application areas. As social network analysis flirts with many disciplines, ranging from social and human sciences to high technology, we also explore new application areas where the social networking and computing can be successfully applied.
