About this Event

Join us for the Computational Life Sciences Seminar Series, brought to you by the University of Chicago Office for Master's Education.

Harnessing complex systems with agent-based modeling, machine learning and high-performance computing

Jonathan Ozik, PhD

Thursday, October 17, 2019

3:00-4:00pm

GCIS W301

Jonathan Ozik, PhD, will review efforts by his research group to formally facilitate the intersection of agent-based modeling, machine learning methods and high-performance computing, three areas of continuing general interest and growth, to tackle the modeling of complex systems. He will present examples across healthcare and multi-scale biology, and describe the underlying open source software that his group has developed to enable these studies and to improve interoperability, scalability, transparency and reproducibility in complex systems modeling.

About the speaker: Dr. Ozik develops applications of large-scale agent-based models, including models of infectious diseases, healthcare interventions, biological systems, water use and management, critical materials supply chains, and critical infrastructure. He also applies large-scale model exploration across modeling methods, including agent-based modeling, microsimulation and machine/deep learning. Dr. Ozik leads the Repast project (repast​.github​.io) for agent- based modeling toolkits and the Extreme-scale Model Exploration with Swift (EMEWS) framework for large-scale model exploration capabilities on high performance computing resources (emews​.org).

About the series: The Computational Life Sciences Seminar Series highlights research in the fields of bioinformatics and computational life sciences, fosters collaborations, and provides a broad audience for feedback on current research. The format for CLSSS is flexible (e.g. standard seminars, lightning talks, etc.) and open to faculty, students, and researchers throughout the University of Chicago community.
