CURRENT POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWS
Daniel is generally interested in using dynamical systems and PDEs to model population dynamics. His current research focuses on models of multilevel selection and evolutionary game theory, as well as understanding collective behavior and pattern formation in ecological and social systems.
Dr. Kim has broad interests in modeling biological systems for mathematical problems in stochastic processes, partial differential equations, and optimization. He has studied intercellular signaling via cellular protrusions, and mitochondrial dynamics in controlling cell conditions.
Alex’s research interests lie primarily in the evolution of prosocial behaviors, asymmetric games, and pathologies in evolutionary game theory. He is also interested in direct reciprocity in repeated and stochastic games, along with applications to problems of multi-agent learning.
Albane is interested in building mathematical and numerical models for hydrodynamics problems that arise in experimental soft active matter and biological physics. Her research focuses on the interplay between confinement, properties of complex fluids and the swimming and sensing of microswimmers at the individual and collective scales.
Mari uses tools from evolutionary game theory, dynamical systems, and network science to explore collective and emergent behavior in social systems. Her recent projects have explored cooperation and political polarization in multi-dimensional opinion spaces, emergent hierarchies in dynamic networks, and indirect reciprocity in group-structured populations.
The Center funds three to four Simons Postdoctoral Fellows every year. The Simons Postdoctoral Fellows work in the general area of mathematical biology. Each Fellow is mentored by two advisors, typically one affiliated with the Department of Mathematics and another with the Department of Biology.
