Congratulations to Demival Vasques Filho (Demi), our latest student to successfully defend his PhD thesis.

Demi undertook his PhD on ‘Structure and dynamics of social bipartite and projected networks’ at the University of Auckland, under the supervision of Te Pūnaha Matatini Principal Investigator Dion O’Neale. He now leaves us to take up a new position at the Leibniz Institute of European History in Mainz, Germany.

Thank you Demi for being such an active part of TPM over the years. We will miss you! Kia kaha!
