MILAN JANOSOV / HUNGARY / Department of Network and Data Science

“The department uniquely bridges natural, computational and social sciences. Its research covers a diverse spectrum of network science concepts to find answers to complex questions about human behavior, such as the success of scientists and the detectability of corruption. As a physicist and biophysicist with a keen interest in interdisciplinary research and big data analytics, it is a perfect place for me to pursue a PhD.”
