Katalin Suba, who joined the team in December 2022, is an art historian doing her PhD research on unique 11th-century stone ornamentation found in Cistercian abbeys. In our team, she started using quantitative methods and currently, she is working on CASTEMO data collection and analysis of 13th-century Languedocian trials against Bernard Niort and his family.
Zoltán Brys is joining in July 2023 to fill in the long-empty position of a computational sociologist. A graduate in sociology and psychology, he is currently doing his PhD research on the determinants of tobacco-use-free homes, using both machine learning methods and network science. He will enrich the DISSINET team by both classical frequentist methods and more recent techniques. He will focus especially on social network analysis.
With their arrival, we are confident in our collective ability to continue making significant advancements in the fascinating and intricate world of medieval dissident cultures.
