Yu Tian

Postdoctoral Fellow

Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics (Nordita)

Yu Tian is a research fellow at the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics (Nordita), funded by Wallenberg Initiative on Networks and Quantum information (WINQ). Yu received her PhD from University of Oxford, where she was supervised by Renaud Lambiotte and also part of Cohort 5 in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training for Industrially Focused Mathematical Modelling (InFoMM). Her PhD research was in collaboration with Tesco, where she worked on both the structural and dynamical properties of networks, inspired by several important industrial problems. Her research interest lies in the broad area of network science, including dynamics and optimization, the incorporation of negative signs (e.g. friend-foe relationships in social networks), and community detection.
