In this webinar Professor Ali Rana Atilgan from Sabanci University, explores his recent research on network models.
The webinar will focus on a number of questions that can be explored using network models. Asking questions such as; in order to reach out to a plethora of people, how do you target a few individuals? Does the same targeting strategy work for all types of communities? And therefore concomitantly, are we all influenced by these strategies which are ultimately making us more segregated or polarised than we used to be?
Professor Ali Rana Atilgan current research activities identify molecular interactions and trace their communication pathways on different time and length scales. While exploring the relationships between local motifs and global patterns in complex networks with arbitrary degree distributions. These activities find technological applications in devising molecular machines and system identification tools.
