Hi! I’m Jim Bagrow. I’m an Associate Professor of Mathematics & Statistics at the University of Vermont and a member of the Vermont Complex Systems Center.

My research focuses on understanding the underlying rules and organizing principles of complex physical and social systems. I combine mathematical models with large-scale data analysis to better understand these systems, with a particular emphasis on network science and human dynamics. Other interests include data science, stochastic and nonlinear dynamics, dynamical systems, and novel optimization and machine learning methods. If you’re interested, check out my homepage and my Google Scholar Profile.

I have received research support from the National Science Foundation, Google Open Source, CA Technologies, MassMutual, ARPA-E, and NASA.

This blog is a place for me to share my thoughts on research, science and technology news, academia, productivity, and more.
