Forest fire network

Research interest

My research interests include the dynamics of adaptive networks, evolutionary game theory, and epidemiology. Also I am interested in self-assembly of network structures, and decentralized, rule-based computations in graphs.

A substantial part of my research is based on computer simulations I design to efficiently deal with large systems. However, a major goal is to improve existing analytical approximation schemes such as moment closure methods, and possibly to develop new approaches towards a deeper understanding of network dynamics.
