About me:

Stefano Gurciullo intends to change the way we tackle economic and social insecurity by the use of data and complexity science. He is a data scientist at University College London, where he is developing systemic risk monitoring tools together with the Central Bank of England.

Stefano also addresses the illicit economy. He created a method of measuring the degree of infiltration of organized crime in the legitimate economy and in public institutions; his research has been featured in the MIT Technological Review. He coordinated the “Mafias in Africa” Project, which released the most complete overview of foreign organized crime’s economic interests in the African Continent, financed by the Gates Foundation.

Stefano served as an independent consultant in the fields of data science, security and corruption to the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, Transparency International and the European Commission.
