My name is Sungju (sometimes called SJ). I am now a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, McMaster University and a participant of the Fields Institute Mathematics for Public Health (Fields MfPH) network under the supervision of Thomas Hurd (1956–2022) and Michael C. Wolfson.
My current project focuses on comparing agent-based modeling (ABM) and ODE-based modeling approaches to studying infectious disease dynamics.
For my PhD (2021, Seoul National University), I studied applied nonlinear dynamics (aka. chaos theory) motivated by problems in atmospheric modeling.
