Complexity Science

selected research

"Generalized Network Dismantling",

PNAS 2019

Complexity science (complex systems) studies systems and problems that are composed of many components which may interact with each other in a dynamic and non-linear way.

In particular, I am interested in interactions, described with the complex networks framework.
