Chico Q. Camargo

Senior Lecturer in Computer Science
University of Exeter

Hi, I'm Chico!

I am a Senior Lecturer (or Tenured Assistant Professor) in Computer Science at the University of Exeter. I also have a couple of other roles:

I am also a science communicator, having written for Science, HuffPost Brazil, The Conversation, and produced over 50 videos for YouTube.

My research interests cover the intersection of computational social science, complex systems, political communication, data science, cultural evolution, cultural sociology, and information theory. In summary, I study how ideas spread and evolve, mixing data science with theories about human behaviour, culture, and society.
