Dr. Shi Zhou is invited to give a talk at The Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge on 15 Oct. 2009. The topic of his talk is ‘Triangular clustering in document networks’, in which he introduces a new model which reproduces a number of the connectivity and content properties of document networks, such as the Web and citation networks. More details of the talk is at http://talks.cam.ac.uk/talk/index/18734 . This talk is based on his recent paper published in the New Journal of Physics http://www.iop.org/EJ/abstract/1367-2630/11/3/033019/.
Dr. Shi Zhou will give a talk at The Eighth Mathematics of Networks (MoN8) meeting at Cambridge University on 18th September 2009. This is a free event and all are welcome.
Dr. Zhou will introduce his research on the second-order mixing in networks. This is an ongoing work collaborated with Prof. Ingemar Cox of UCL and Prof. Lars K. Hansen of DTU.
(Application for this studentship is now closed.)
We are recruiting a PhD student to join the EPSRC research project SCALE (SMALL CHANGES LEAD TO LARGE EFFECTS): Changing Energy Costs in Transport and Location Policy. This is a joint project with UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) and UCL Centre for Transport Studies (CTS). The student will be based in the Department of Computer Science and will be involved in the development of network science to the problems of rapid change in transportation networks with a specific focus on large cities such as London.
The student will be fully funded by an EPSRC PhD Studentship which will cover tuition fees at UK/EU rate and stipend. Interested candidate are encouraged to contact me as soon as possible.
