Complete Controllability with Two Driver Nodes (red: intervention points)

Hi, welcome to my webpage! I am interested in developing frameworks for better modeling and understanding complex systems. My PhD dissertation is focused on the analysis of controllability for temporal complex networks.

Research Interests

In general, my research interest is in understanding and employing the theory of complex systems and network science in real-world applications. My research interests:

  • The controllability analysis of time-aggregated and temporal networks
  • Applications of computational models in understanding the mechanics of social systems and making predictions
  • The next generation of cloud infrastructure and services that are capable of self-organization and self-adaptation
