Matthew Ludkin

Senior Research Associate


After recently completing the MRes year, I have begun work on my PhD. This involves determining if a network has changed in structure through time. To begin with, I will study different methods to model network structure with a view to adapting these to account for time. The supervisors of this project are Professor Idris Eckley and Dr Peter Neal and in partnership with Ralph Mansson at DSTL.
