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.
