"More than a Pretty Picture: Visual Thinking in Network Science"


Location: Room 210-214, McKenna Hall

Speaker: James Moody, Duke University

Jim Moody’s research focuses on social networks in multiple contexts such as friendships among adolescents, the correspondence between social networks and neighborhood, the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, and social relations on the Internet. Moody is very interested in extending network techniques to large-scale social networks (1000s of nodes), which includes developing efficient methods for sampling networks, and identifying how social networks change over time.

Lecture presented by the Interdisciplinary Center for Network Science and Applications
