PROFILE

Dr. John Tang is a member of the Systems Research Group group at the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge.

His inter-disciplinary research has contributed to the fields of dynamic complex network analysis, social network analysis and systems design and has been published in major physics (Physical Review E, AIP Chaos) and computer science (Elsevier, Springer, ACM, IEEE) peer-reviewed, journals and conferences.  John holds a Ph.D from the University of Cambridge (under the supervision of Cecilia Mascolo) and a M.Sci from University College London, both in Computer Science.
