Research Interests: Data science, networks, time series, random fields and point processes.

 

Excitement about data science is now pervasive in our daily lives. Data is collected ubiquitously, and from every aspect of our lives. The techniques and methods we use to understand the new types of observations need revitalizing, and our understanding of ethical behavior revisiting. My main area of research is network analysis, where I study the analysis of large and  heterogeneous networks. For more information, please see my research page.
