We’ve heard it: people that invest on the stock market or that gamble in lotteries, casinos, etc usually say “I’m going through a bad patch” (or bad spell). That is, they have been losing money for a while, but hey! better times are ahead and there’s no reason to quit. Are they sure? Are better times ahead? How close is...
My name is Esteban Moro and I am a researcher at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in the GISC group. My field of research are complex systems. The fact that the systems under study are complex does not mean that its behavior cannot be understood or anticipated. I believe research must be interdisciplinary and close to real life problems and because of that, I do research in social networks, financial markets or viral marketing (complex enough!).
