Update II: I moved to the neuro-explicit modeling group at DFKI.
Update: I am currently working on the NextAID research program.
I am working on numerical methods (like fast simulations or model reduction techniques) for the analysis of stochastic dynamical processes unfolding on complex networks. My research aims at understanding how stochastic interactions, that are constrained by a network topology, shape collective emerging phenomena such as epidemics, rumors, blackouts in power grids, or burst in biological neural networks. The image shows a continuous-time SIS contagion process (infected nodes in red, healthy nodes in blue) on a geometric network.
