Habemus Doctor : Edward Laurence 🧑🎓
Edward Laurence has successfully defended his thesis work on the 12th of August (see the Abstract here) and received hearty accolades for his research on “La résilience des réseaux complexes” (Resilience of Complex Networks). Apart from the local team of examiners [Louis J. Dubé (dir., Physics), Patrick Desrosiers (co-dir. Physics), Antoine Allard (Physics), Audrey Durand (Computer Science)], we were happy to have recruited a former member of Dynamica, Pierre-André Noel (Element AI – Montréal) as external referee for his expertise in Network Science and Deep Learning.
Edward is presently working in Artificial Intelligence in an AI start-up named Hectiq AI based Québec City. The final version of the thesis is available here.
