Earlier this summer, Dr. Saray Shai joined our research group. A recent graduate of the School of Computer Science at University of St. Andrews, Saray’s thesis was on “Coupled complex networks: structure, adaptation, and processes.” Before St. Andrews, Saray graduated with honors from the Israel Institute of Technology (Technion) with a B.Sc. in Mathematics and B.Sc. in Computer Science.
Saray brings her expertise to Carolina to work with Mucha’s group on projects funded by the James S. McDonnell Foundation, particularly in the area of multilayer networks. In future years, Saray may also teach a course in the Department of Mathematics.
