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.
