Dr. Vaidy Sivaraman recipient of Strategic Research Initiative Award

Dr. Vaidy Sivaraman has been awarded funding by the Strategic Research Initiative (SRI) of the College of Arts and Sciences for his project titled "Pure meets applied: Graph theory in network science". A description of the project follows.

The objective of this project is to use techniques from graph theory to understand large real-world networks.  In particular, understanding centrality measures and clustering properties of networks, and using them to extract meaningful information about real-world networks to predict behavior with applications in disease control and cybersecurity.
