As a Fulbright guest researcher at Barabasi Lab (Network Science Insitute, Northeastern University, Boston) I was curious about the lab members' professional backgrounds, projects and collaborations. This exploration turned into one on one sessions where I went through a questionnaire with every person actually active at the lab. After learning about people’s educational background and current research areas, I wanted to better understand the connections between them and to draw the inner networks of a Network Science Lab. With the help of post-doc fellow Rodrigo Dorantes-Gilardi, I made everyone fill a datasheet to map with whom and how frequently people are in touch with each other upon work-related matters and social matters. This dataset has become a departure point to analyse and interpret the social and work networks within the lab and made me start experimenting with possible physical embodiments of the results.
