A fully-funded PhD scholarship is available under the supervision of Dr. Yilun Shang at Computer and Information Sciences Department of Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK
Complex network analysis and resilience in large-scale multi-layer networks
The goal of this project is to investigate and develop new data science approaches to model large-scale networks. Recent advances in network science have enabled researchers to understand the resilience of large-scale topological systems and develop algorithms
to improve their robustness in the presence of different classes of failures and perturbations. This project aims to further enhance the understanding of large-scale complex systems and create a platform to translate fundamental research into real-world impact.
