Leonie Neuhäuser

PhD Candidate in Network Science

RWTH Aachen University


I am a doctoral researcher in the Computational Network Sciences Group at RWTH Aachen University. My research interests include Network Science, Complex Systems and Computational Social Sciences. In particular, I focus on the statistical and dynamical analysis of Social Networks with topics ranging from opinion dynamics on hypergraphs to the effects of systematic errors and bias on rankings in social networks.

I am the Social Secretary of the Women in Network Science Society (WiNS) which aims to foster opportunities for the education, employment, and career advancement of women and non-binary genders in network science. Reach out to me if you want to participate in events, want to know more about the society or have any other suggestions or requests!
