Sofia Gil-Clavel is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Multi Actor Systems, Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management, at the Delft University of Technology, Netherlands. She is simultaneously finalizing a PhD in Computational Social Science at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research and the University of Groningen.
Before moving to Europe, she was head of the Demographic Research department of the National Population Counsil of Mexico. Sofia holds an MSc in Computer Science from the Mexican Center of Mathematical Research. She also studied Actuarial Science at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
At the Center for Social Complexity of Climate Change, Sofia works on the joint use of Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Statistics, and Population Science to disentangle the micro and macro level mechanisms that incentivize human transformational adaptation to climate change.
Sofia is a DataViz lover; she is one of those researchers that spend too much time playing around with ggplot in R or seaborn in Python.
