Research title: Game-theoretic and probabilistic methods applied to spatial network models of contagion

Research Summary

Current research

I'm currently working on representing compartmental models of diseases on graphs exactly, using systems of differential equations. Specifically, I'm interested in where this approach out-performs simulation approaches and how the feasibility of the dynamical approach can be increased. I'm hoping to find that the dynamical approach is a good idea for certain types of graphs (small graphs and some larger, decomposable graph classes) and when we need to consider a large range of initial conditions.

I am also interested in using graph problems and games such as the Firefighter Problem to model disease spread. In particular, I'm interested in introducing features representing agency-based considerations and how this changes optimal intervention strategies.

Grants

Lanfine Organ Studentship (2019-Present)

I am a Lanfine Organ Student at the University, which involves playing the organ on a rota at weekday services in the University chapel at the direction of the University Organist, Dr Kevin Bowyer.

RUK Excellence Scholarship, University of Glasgow (2017-2020)

I was awarded the University of Glasgow's Excellence Scholarship during my undergraduate studies, which amounted to £1,000 per year of study, because of my A-level performance. More information here: gla.ac.uk/scholarships/rukexcellencescholarship/
