I am an applied probabilist with special interests in mathematical modeling, simulation,
game theory, queueing theory.

Lately I have been
working on problems in the theory and modeling of evolutionary processes.

My current research interests include

- Evolutionary population dynamics
- The evolution of cooperation/altruism, group selection, multi-level selection, cultural evolution
- Game theory
- Variance reduction in Monte-Carlo and discrete event simulations
- Mathematical models of wireless communication systems, and other queueing models

** Spring 2021 Course Web Pages **

Here are the slides for the talk on Group Selection I gave at the JMM 2020 meeting in Denver.

** Supporting material for Group-Level Events are "Catalysts" in the Evolution of Cooperation **

- Supplimentary Information for the paper.
- Numerical routine, synergy.m Matlab code that solves equation (1) in the paper.
- Visualization software Create numerical animations from numerical solutions.
- Sample animation Animation for Figure 2 (top row) no group-level events; r = 0.30, rho = 0.0
- Sample animation Animation for Figure 2 (bottom row) baseline level of group-level events; r = 0.30, rho = 1.0
- Sample animation Baseline model with r = 0.20, Rho = 0.50
- Sample animation Baseline model with r = 0.20, Rho = 1.00
- Sample animation Baseline model with r = 0.20, Rho = 1.50
