U STUDENT AWARDED PRESTIGIOUS CHURCHILL SCHOLARSHIP
Simpler has worked on two research projects over the past year and a half under the direction of Tom Alberts, assistant professor in mathematics at the University of Utah. One focused on the stochastic heat equation on Markov Chains. The second studied the Bak-Sneppen model, a simplified model of evolution that incorporates natural selection and spatial interaction between species.
