Mathematics, supervised by Professor Zhiming Zheng, School of Mathematics and Systems Science, Beihang University Research InterestsI am interested in the structure and dynamics of networks across diverse domains, including human behaviors, social-technical networks and biological systems. With the tools from mathematics, statistical physics, data science and computer science, I work towards the understanding in many network-related interdisciplinary problems. My researches focus on the theoretical and empirical approaches in parallel with simulations. In a network, some nodes are more important than others. Although much smaller than the whole network size, their activation can cause large scale information diffusion, and meanwhile, their elimination can induce network collapse. Recently, Morone & Makse have mapped this problem of localizing the minimal set of influential nodes to optimal percolation, and proposed a novel algorithm called Collective Influence - CI algorithm[1]. Our work is to verify CI's efficiency from the perspective of real-world data analysis. We collected large scale information-diffusion data from social platforms and scientific publications, such as twitter, LiveJournal, facebook and APS journals. By reconstructing the underlying topological structures and upper spreading dynamics, we try to validate CI's effectiveness by comparing it with several other heuristic strategies, such as PageRank, adaptive High-degree, K-shell and etc. Collective Behavior & Social Wealth in Public Goods Game We explore how investment difference would affect collective cooperation and social wealth distribution in Public Goods game within structured networks. Our consideration comes from that high-quality cooperation groups might attract more investments from rational cooperators.
