Congratulations to Dr. Feng Shi

Grad_ShiCongratulations to Feng “Bill” Shi for successfully defending his Ph.D. dissertation, titled “Modeling Networks and Dynamics in Complex Systems.” In his work, Bill investigated a pair of interesting and challenging problems: large-scale resistor networks for modeling electrical responses in nanorod composites, and models of opinion formation in co-evolving voter model networks.

Bill is pictured here (right) walking the “faculty gauntlet” at our department’s graduation recognition ceremony.

Bill leaves us to start a postdoctoral associate position working with James Evans at the University of Chicago (see “Computational center will study the past and future of knowledge“).
