My PhD thesis is about studying, quantifying, and modeling key components of career success on various artistic fields and comparing them to scientific ones. For this, I collect and analyze large scale data about motion picture, music and literature. Besides science of success, I am generally interested in data mining, data and network visualization, and social media.
