Andreas Gros

Data Scientist

I am a scientist with a background in complex systems on Facebook’s spatial computing team. I currently work on the High-Resolution Settlement Layer and connectivity crisis data. I also work on spatial demographic questions. For my PhD I studied the evolution of dispersal strategies at the University of Wuerzburg, Germany. I expanded the work on spatial co-evolutionary systems as a postdoc at the New England Complex Systems Institute, where I also worked on spatial socio-economic systems, like ethnic violence. I received my diploma (equivalent to MS) in applied systems analysis at the Institute of Applied Systems Analysis in Osnabrueck, Germany.

Interests

Spatial computing, machine learning, demography, and connectivity
