She is a member of the NODE interdisciplinary group on campus lead by Professors Albin and Poggi-Corradini in Mathematics and Professor Scoglio in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Nethali is studying novel metrics on networks that arise from the concept of modulus, which is a new way to measure families of objects on graphs, originally invented in the field of Mathematical Analysis, specifically Complex Analysis.
