Country-wide Mobility Changes Observed Using Mobile Phone Data During COVID-19 Pandemic
This research indicates that mobile phone usage data permits the moment-by-moment quantification of mobility behavior for a whole country, and emphasizes the need to improve the availability of such data in anonymized form to empower rapid response to combat COVID-19 and future pandemics. Expand
Quantifying Firm-Level Economic Systemic Risk from Nation-Wide Supply Networks
It is demonstrated that a tiny fraction of companies has extraordinarily high systemic risk impacting about 23% of the national economic production should any of them default, and it is discussed how simple policies of introducing supply chain redundancies can reduce ESR of some extremely risky companies.

Incentivizing Resilience in Financial Networks
When banks extend loans to each other, they generate a negative externality in the form of systemic risk. They create a network of interbank exposures by which they expose other banks to potentialExpand
The multi-layer network nature of systemic risk and its implications for the costs of financial crises
The inability to see and quantify systemic financial risk comes at an immense social cost. Systemic risk in the financial system arises to a large extent as a consequence of the interconnectedness ofExpand
Firm-level propagation of shocks through supply-chain networks
Social and economic networks can be a channel of negative shocks and thus deteriorate resilience and sustainability in societies. This study focuses on supply chains, or supplier–customer networks ofExpand
Supply network science: Emergence of a new perspective on a classical field.
A critical review of theoretical and model based studies which conceptualise supply chains from a network science perspective is presented, showing that empirical data do not always support theoretical models that were developed, and arguing that different industrial settings may present different characteristics.

Monitoring indirect contagion
Abstract We propose two indicators for quantifying the potential exposure of financial institutions to indirect contagion arising from deleveraging of assets in stress scenarios. The first indicator,Expand
Structure and tie strengths in mobile communication networks
It is found that, when it comes to information diffusion, weak and strong ties are both simultaneously ineffective, and this coupling significantly slows the diffusion process, resulting in dynamic trapping of information in communities. Expand
Elimination of systemic risk in financial networks by means of a systemic risk transaction tax
Financial markets are exposed to systemic risk (SR), the risk that a major fraction of the system ceases to function, and collapses. It has recently become possible to quantify SR in terms ofExpand
Network Diversity and Economic Development
It is found that the diversity of individuals’ relationships is strongly correlated with the economic development of communities and the relation between the structure of social networks and access to socioeconomic opportunity is investigated. Expand
