As a visitor at the Center For Complex Networks & Social Data Science (CCNSD) of SBU, I work on topics at the interface of physics, computer science, and systems biology, such as inference problems like phase transitions in statistical inference: when data becomes too sparse or too noisy, it can suddenly become impossible to find underlying patterns in it. This includes finding clusters in high-dimensional data and finding communities in social or biological networks. My project aims to use physics-inspired methods to find structure within large data sets and determine when these structures are statistically significant. We are developing physics-based algorithms which can point to hidden connections between spatially disparate nodes of a network!
