Thomas Sauerwald awarded prestigious European Research Council Starting Grant

Dr Thomas Sauerwald, University Lecturer in Computer Science, has been awarded a prestigious European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant. His funded project titled “Dynamics of Multiple, Interacting and Concurrent Markov Chains” will run from 2016-2021, and aims to explore new algorithms based on multiple random walks that are able to cope with massive and complex data sets.

The ERC is the first pan-European funding organisation for frontier research with a budget of 13.1 billion EURO for the period 2014-2020.

ERC starting grants are designed to support outstanding scientists in Europe with 2-7 years of postdoctoral experience to conduct cutting-edge research.
