Research: Network Models for Data Science and Complex Systems

  • I develop theoretical foundations for network-based models of large data sets and high-dimensional dynamical systems.
  • I am interested in mathematical modeling, random matrix theory, matrix perturbation theory, information theory, topological data analysis, randomized algorithms, high-dimensional geometry, machine learning and much more.
  • I work in interdisciplinary collaborations to study the multiscale and self-organizing aspects of biological, social and information systems.
