Cory is a second-year PhD student working with Professor Albert-László Barabàsi. He is interested in the intersection of network science and mathematics, specifically the use of topology and spectral graph theory in network analysis. He is also interested in the role that networks play in success in the arts and sciences. Cory’s current project centers on identifying isotopic networks in three-dimensional space. Prior to joining NetSI, he received a M.S. in Mathematics and a B.S. in Mathematics with an applied mathematics emphasis from Brigham Young University. There he researched both spectral graph theory with Dr. Mark Kempton and knot theory with Dr. Mark Hughes.
