Award Date
International Mathematical Olympiad Honourable Mention 2007
International Mathematical Olympiad Honourable Mention 2006
Complex systems science, cyber-physical systems, control - analysis of large, complex networks in different domains of engineering, biology, and linguistics. Control and optimisation of complex systems using local, incomplete information, distributed structures and energy-efficient techniques. Study of cyber-physical systems in a complex setting, swarms of autonomous devices. Unconventional computing and communications - future computing and communication paradigms, including but not limited to reversible computation and reversibility as an engineering principle, quantum computation and communications, molecular communications. These are intimately tied with the E3 challenges at Trinity: Communities are complex networks. Production is about control. Resources in circular economy are subject to reversibility and so are the complex networks in our environment. Wellbeing is increasingly dependent on unconventional (e.g. molecular) communications. Data is inherently complex.
