Brandon Legried, Martinez Figueroa to assist research Southeast Center for Mathematics and Biology
Sep 20, 2022
The Southeast Center for Mathematics & Biology welcomes two new Postdoctoral Scholars to assist faculty and research.
Brandon Legried will work with Christine Heitsch. He recently earned his Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Brandon’s interests are in Probability, Applied Mathematics, Mathematical Statistics, and Theoretical Computer Science. Brandon started as a Postdoc with SCMB here at Georgia Tech in Fall 2022.
Francisco Martinez Figueroa is the new Postdoc researcher at the University of South Florida (USF), working with Natasha Jonoska. Francisco recently earned his Ph.D. from Ohio State University (OSU). Francisco’s interests are Topological Combinatorics, Random Graphs, Chromatic number of distance graphs, Topological Data Analysis, Machine Learning and Applications to Biology. Francisco is part of SCMB, in which he collaborates with the biology team of Professor Francesca Storici here at Georgia Tech.
The Southeast Center for Mathematics and Biology (SCMB) is one of four NSF-Simons Research Centers for Mathematics of Complex Biological Systems (MathBioSys). The other three are the Center for Mathematical and Statistical Analysis of Biology at Harvard University, the Center on Multiscale Cell Fate at the University of California, Irvine, and the Center for Quantitative Biology at Northwestern University.
SCMB is headquartered at the Georgia Institute of Technology (commonly known as Georgia Tech) in Atlanta, GA, and has six partner institutions around the southeastern United States — Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, TN; Tulane University in New Orleans, LA; the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL; the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL; Clemson University in Clemson, SC; and Duke University in Durham, NC.
