Student Feature - Sulimon Sattari

Student Feature - Sulimon Sattari

Sulimon Sattari is a postdoctoral fellow working for Tamiki Komatsuzaki at the Research Institute for Electronic Science at Hokkaido University in Sapporo, Japan. He received his PhD in Physics under Kevin Mitchell at UC Merced in May 2017. He received his BS in Physics and BA in Mathematics from UC Santa Cruz in 2011. Sulimon’s postdoctoral work applies techniques from nonlinear dynamics, information theory, and thermodynamics to study the growth structure of biological cell colonies using experimental images. In his PhD, Sulimon applied a technique called symbolic dynamics to compute mixing rates in fluid systems and ionization rates in atomic systems using topological techniques involving invariant manifolds. As an undergraduate, Sulimon worked under Hartmut Sadrozinski at the Santa Cruz Institute for Particle Physics where he performed experimental research for the development of particle detector prototypes for the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
