I am Naomi Arnold, a PhD student within the Networks group in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London. My supervisors are Richard Clegg and Raul Mondragon. My research interests are broadly in modelling different social and information systems as evolving graphs. Specific areas of interest to me are:
- Network growth models: model selection and changepoint detection.
- Tools for temporal networks.
I maintain the FETA (Framework for Evolving Topology Analysis) codebase with Richard Clegg, which can be used for generating graphs from different growth models, and for model selection (paper describing the background and process here).
I am also a contributor to the Raphtory software for the analysis of temporal graphs.
- Talk at Mishcon de Reya’s reading group: Temporal graph analysis of the far-right social network Gab
- Preprint on the arXiv: Moving with the Times: Investigating the Alt-Right Network Gab using Temporal Interaction Graphs
- Two posters accepted at Complenet 2020: “Changing the tune: mixtures of network models that vary in time” and “What window works? The effect of varying temporal depth when analysing social network user interactions”.
- This year I will be teaching part of the Digital Media and Social Networks course at QMUL.
