Associate Professor, Physics
Petter Holme studies networks of various kinds; how their evolution depends on processes on the network and how their structure influences such processes. Holme builds methods to understand large-scale systems by combining theories from different fields—physics, sociology, bioinformatics, economy, etc. Examples of projects include how to predict population displacements in disasters and exploit temporal contact structures to mitigate epidemics. Holme is Associate Professor at Department of Physics, Umeå University.
