Samuel Unicomb
Postdoc in applied mathematics
University of Limerick

My research interests lie in the area of complex systems and networks, where my focus is on developing mathematical models of information diffusion over networks. More broadly, I have an interest in scientific and mathematical computing, as well as numerical methods.

I have a background in physics, from my days at UNSW, Sydney, with a leaning towards the statistical and computational variety. My PhD is in computer science, from ENS Lyon.
