Complex systems and networks

My work on distributed IR has drawn on theories and inspirations not only from information retrieval but also from complex networks research (interconnectivity of distributed systems). Understanding structural properties of interconnected systems provides important insight into a broad range of applications such as communication, distributed computing, and bibliometrics (e.g., by taking citations/coauthorships as network edges). As part of my research to understand network evolution and dynamics, I recently developed a fitness model for scholar impact analysis.
