Complex Systems Research Group

Research interests

We all engage in various forms of communication and collaboration in our daily lives in order to achieve specific results - with our colleagues, with people from other organisations and so on. Over time, such goal-oriented interactions give rise to informal social networks. Dr Shahadat Uddin's research explores how the structures and dynamics of such networks affect performance and the achievement of goals.

"In today's complex world, most real-life problems require diverse expertise from different domains in order to resolve them, and the engagement between the actors involved gives rise to informal social networks. It is therefore very important for us to understand how such networks can best function to bring together diverse expertise to solve multidisciplinary problems in an efficient and effective way.

"My research looks at what types of network structures are helpful in achieving desired goals, which actors play major roles, and how we can capture those actors' effects on the performance of the network.

"For example, in a disaster-response situation, where members of different teams such as police officers, ambulance officers and fire fighters all participate for an effective and fast recovery, it is important to understand how these individuals can best communicate and collaborate to coordinate their efforts.

"Similarly, in the case of an infectious disease outbreak, it is important to understand how a disease-spreading network evolves over time, so we can identify the prominent actors and develop an appropriate 'network immunisation policy' to control or disrupt the disease-spreading network.

"I was fascinated when I first became familiar with the field of social network dynamics, and the concept that the structures of these networks have an impact on the level of goal accomplishment.

"I have now been working in this field since 2008, during which time the University of Sydney has supported me greatly in achieving my research goals."
