Introduction
I am a PhD student at CU-Boulder. I am broadly interested in studying the underlying rules and patterns that govern emergent behavior in complex adaptive systems.

Chapter
Genetic Algorithms (GAs) have been widely used to solve network optimization problems with varying degrees of success. Part of the problem with GAs lies in the premature convergence when dealing with large-scale and complex problems; Caught in local optima, the algorithm might fail to reach the global optimum even after a large number of iterations...

The main idea of developing Grid is to make effective use of the computation power distributed all over the world. Economical issues are the most vital motivations of resource owners to share their services. This means that users are required to pay for access to services based on their usage and level of QoS they need. Therefore total cost of exec...

The NoC paradigm is one, if not only one, fit to enable the integration of an exceedingly large number of computational, logical and storage blocks in a single chip. The paper presents a novel technique called CGMAP,which finds a mapping of the vertices of a task graph to the tiles of a mesh based NoCarchitecture, with an objective of improving the...

Mapping is one of the most critical issues in designing a NoC-based system. A good mapping of an application to a NoC will lead to more traffic among resources, which are physically close on the chip. In this paper, we introduce several one-dimensional chaotic maps for solving the NoC mapping problem. In addition we compare the solution qualities i...

As honeybees build their nests in pre-existing tree cavities, they grow accustomed to dealing with the presence of geometric constraints, resulting in non-regular hexagons and topological defects. In this work, we study how bees collectively adapt to their environment in order to regulate the comb structure. Specifically, we identify the irregulari...

Honey bees (Apis mellifera L.) aggregate around the queen by collectively organizing a communication network to propagate volatile pheromone signals. Our previous study shows that individual bees “scent” to emit pheromones and fan their wings to direct the signal flow, creating an efficient search and aggregation process. In this work, we introduce...

Trophallaxis is the mutual exchange and direct transfer of liquid food among eusocial insects such as ants, termites, wasps, and bees. This process allows the efficient dissemination of nutrients and is crucial for colony survival. In this paper, we present a data-driven agent-based model and use it to explore how the interactions of individual bee...

I am modeling the collective behavior of random walkers (using CTRW) on a 2d lattice and I am having trouble finding a "correct" rule that won't eventually violate the uniformly random motion of my agents. Any ideas?
