Srebrenka Letina Receives Award for Advanced Doctoral Students

February 12, 2019

Srebrenka Letina - PhD student at the Department of Network and Data Science - has received the Award for Advanced Doctoral Students for outstanding student research. Congratulations!

The analysis of psychological networks in previous research has been limited to the inspection of centrality measures and the quantification of specific global network features. However, a psychological network entails more potentially useful and interesting information that can be reaped by other methods widely used in network science. In their recently accepted paper, Srebrenka and her collaborators suggest methods that provide a clearer picture about the hierarchical arrangement of nodes in the network, address the heterogeneity of nodes, and look more closely at the network’s local structure.

The university provides incentives for academic excellence and rewards those promising students who, with their work, have shown outstanding academic potential. The CEU Academic Achievement Awards for Advanced Doctoral Students are awarded to students who have completed a significant portion of research that serves as the basis of the dissertation and for scholarly presentation of tangible results that directly stem from the research (a draft chapter, a paper).
