Tiago P. Peixoto is an Associate Professor at the Department of Network and Data Science at the Central European University.
His research focuses on characterizing, identifying and explaining large-scale patterns found in the structure and function of complex network systems — representing diverse phenomena with physical, biological, technological, or social origins — using principled approaches from statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics and Bayesian inference.
Peixoto develops and maintains graph-tool — an efficient Python module for manipulation and statistical analysis of graphs and networks.
He has a PhD in Physics from the University of São Paulo, and a Habilitation in Theoretical Physics from the University of Bremen.
In 2019 he was the recipient of the Erdős–Rényi Prize in Network Science, awarded by the Network Science Society.
