I am a Research Scientist at MPI for Intelligent Systems who recently graduated with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. I study optimization problems that arise in diffusion processes in the context of information, social and epidemiological networks. To date, I have focused on: network inference from diffusion traces and spread (influence) maximization.

I have developed several network inference algorithms: NetInf, MultiTree, NetRate and InfoPath, and two spread estimation and maximization algorithms: InfluMax and ContInEst.

Network Inference: NetInfMultiTreeNetRate and InfoPath.
