MSc thesis project proposal

Design of Sparse Network Control

Social network opinion dynamics is often manipulated by selfish agents such as paid vloggers, marketing agents, and election candidates. These agents have limited access to the network due to physical and budget constraints. The constraints can be modeled using sparse inputs.


This project investigates the optimal strategies of the agents to drive the network opinion to the desired state.


For this project, we are looking for a master's student in either electrical engineering or any related study. Furthermore, we are looking for a student who has a background in signal processing, sensors, basic statistical techniques, data analysis, and programming skills in Matlab, Python, and/or C/C++. Strong communication (written and verbal) skills in English are mandatory.
