Co-Director, Dr. Carlos Castillo-Chavez

On behalf of the faculty and staff of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, I invite you to further explore the Simon A. Levin Mathematical, Computational and Modeling Sciences Center (SAL MCMSC) at Arizona State University to learn more about the exceptional opportunities we have to offer within the fields of mathematics and science.

The Simon A. Levin Mathematical, Computational and Modeling Sciences Center (SAL MCMSC) establishes a forum that brings together a community of quantitative scientists and mathematicians from all corners of the university whose research and scholarship interests are driven by “intellectual fusion.” Center researchers' approach to research and scholarship is “solution-focused” rather than “discipline-focused”. The SAL MCMSC members have a history of stimulating synergistic cross-disciplinary activities, and initiating biological, environmental and sociological research that involves a significant use of quantitative methods—mathematics, modeling, statistics and simulations.

Our faculty are active in supporting the development of students through educational, research, and mentorship activities from high school to the postdoctoral level. This site will introduce you to the programs, courses, research interests, and educational opportunities within the realms of mathematical, computational, and scientific modeling.

The goals of the Simon A. Levin Mathematical, Computational and Modeling Sciences Center (SAL MCMSC) include the establishment of flexible research and training cross-disciplinary programs driven by global and dynamic perspectives; the facilitation of research efforts at the interface of the biological, environmental, and social sciences through its support for the development of computational, modeling, and theoretical frameworks that help integrate knowledge over multiple temporal, spatial, and organizational scales will provide a strong foundation for students interested in such fields.

Thank you for your interest in the Simon A. Levin Mathematical, Computational and Modeling Sciences Center (SAL MCMC) at Arizona State University. For additional information, please contact us at (480) 727-8525.

Sincerely,

Carlos Castillo-Chavez
Regents Professor and Joaquin Bustoz Jr. Professor of Mathematical Biology

Interim Co-Director, Dr. Anuj Mubayi

Anuj Mubayi is currently an assistant professor of applied mathematics in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change as well as in the Simon A. Levin Mathematical Computational Modeling Science Center at Arizona State University-Tempe. Mubayi is also a co-director of Mathematical Theoretical Biology Institute and director of the B.S. in Applied Mathematics in Life and Social Sciences undergraduate program. He also holds adjunct affliations at multiple institutions including the University of Texas at Arlington, Northeastern Illinois University at Chicago, the Prevention Research Center in Berkeley, the National Alliance for Doctoral Studies in the Mathematical Sciences, and the Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University. He received his doctorate from Arizona State University in 2008 and held a Gates Foundation’s and a National Institutes of Health fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic and the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, respectively.

He is an applied and computational mathematical scientist whose research program is driven by the mathematical and computational modeling of problems of interest to the public health or social sciences communities. He has extensive experience in the successful development of strong mathematical sciences training programs.
