Research Interests

I am broadly interested in applying probability theory to understand the performance of networks and algorithms. I am particularly interested in algorithms and analysis for large-scale networks which include many real-world examples such as social networks, cloud networks, the internet, artificial neural networks, etc. I try to understand the performance of these networks by analysing the stochastic dynamics which describes the time evolution of the nodes and edges constituting the networks. Some keywords that describe my research are

  • Applied Probability
  • Performance Modelling and Analysis
  • Dynamics of Complex Networks
  • Mathematical Foundations of Machine Learning

Available Positions

I am always looking for motivated Ph.D. students with strong mathematical background to work with me. To have a better understanding of the type of research I do, please have a look at some of my recent papersLink opens in a new window. If you are interested to work with me, please send in your CV. Students with non-CS background (e.g., in Mathematics, Statistics, Electrical Engineering) are encouraged to apply. Information on the application process and funding opportunities can be found hereLink opens in a new window and hereLink opens in a new window.

The CS department at Warwick is one of the top computing departments in the UK (it ranks 4th among all computing departments in the latest Research Excellence Framework). It is well known for its research in theoretical and foundational areas of computer science. It is also strongly connected to the reknowned Warwick Mathematics Institute (WMI)Link opens in a new window.
