I currently work as an Assistant Research Scientist at Indiana University Network Science Institute. My research concerns mathematical theories and models of networks, with a focus on community structures and dynamical processes on networks (See publication 3, 5 for examples). At IUNI, our cross-disciplinary collaborations aim to put these theories and models in action. With Computational Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, we are applying stochastic block model to detecting meaningful brain structures. With Cyberinfrastructure for Network Science Center, we are trying to combine scholarly networks with geographic and disciplinary maps to produce networks capable of capturing scientific activities.
I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Information Sciences Institute of University of Southern California. Before that, I was a graduate fellow at Santa Fe Institute. I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of New Mexico.
