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
Some Recent Publications
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
