I am a Reader in Mathematics at University of Sussex, with my research at the interface between network sciences, dynamical systems and stochastic processes. In particular, I focus on dynamical processes on static and dynamic networks, using mainly epidemic, and more recently, neuronal network models. I work on developing paradigms / theoretical models that capture complexities arising in real networks, such as heterogeneity in the characteristics, behaviour and interaction of individuals, as well as higher-order network structure. Recently, I have significantly contributed to: (a) identifying links between approximate models and their rigorous mathematical counterpart, (b) proving the exactness of certain epidemic models on tree-like networks, (c) highlighting linkages between various modern epidemic models, and (d) extending modelling to more realistic networks exhibiting clustering and motifs.For further details and publications please visit my personal webpage.
