Biography

Dirk Brockmann is Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Sciences and Applied Mathematics at Northwestern which he joined in 2008. His research focuses on complex systems, modeling the spatial spread of epidemics, human mobility and complex networks using methods from theoretical and computational physics. He also works on the use of pervasive large scale datasets to understand human behavior and the development of methods to exploit these datasets to improve models for dynamical phenomena mediated by human interactions and mobility. http://rocs.northwestern.edu/
