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.

Interview with Nancy Kopell

Interview with Nancy Kopell

We interviewed Nancy Kopell, the winner of SIAM’s 2013 Jürgen Moser Lecture prize for her lifetime contributions in applied dynamical systems, about mathematics, her career, current frontiers in mathematical neuroscience, and more. Nancy is a professor at Boston University in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics, is Director of their Cognitive Rhythms Collaborative, and is Co-Director of the Center for Computational Neuroscience & Neural Technology. Nancy has won numerous awards and made pioneering contributions to dynamical systems, mathematical neuroscience, and mathematical biology more generally. Take a look at her website and her Society for Neuroscience biography for more details.


Interview with Masato Nagata

Interview with Masato Nagata

In 1990, Masato Nagata published the first ever computation of fully nonlinear, finite-amplitude invariant solutions in planar Couette flow. In his paper, he mixed dynamical systems theory, fluid dynamics and computational science, and it has garnered nearly three hundred citations over the years and has had an enourmous impact on the analysis of turbulence as a dynamical system. In this interview, Prof. Nagata shares some of the long, arduous and occasionally joyful journey to this landmark contribution.
