Pádraig Mac Carron
My research focuses on analysing the structure of social networks.
I have a background in statistical physics and I am currently working on dynamical processes in mobile phone networks and collaboration networks. I am also interested in animal social networks, in particular those of non-human primates.
My previous research was on the application of social networks to mythology. Some of these datasets can be found at: https://github.com/pmaccarron/data
