Anil Vullikanti Virginia Bioinformatics Institute
Vullikanti's research interests are in the broad areas of approximation and randomized algorithms, dynamical systems, wireless networks, social networks, computation epidemiology and the modeling, simulation and analysis of socio-technical systems. His work has been published in journals and conferences in different areas, such as Nature, Journal of the ACM, IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, SIAM Journal on Computing and Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Computing. His name appears as V.S. Anil Kumar on most publications. He is the recipient of the NSF CAREER award and the DOE Early Career award.
The NDSSL is pursuing an advanced research and development program for interaction-based modeling, simulation, and associated analysis, experimental design, and decision support tools for understanding large biological, information, social, and technological systems. Extremely detailed, multi-scale computer simulations allow formal and experimental investigation of these systems. The need for such simulations is derived from questions posed by scientists, policy makers, and planners involved with very large complex systems. The simulation applications are underwritten by a theoretical program in discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science that is sustained by more than a decade of experience with the interplay of research and application. Laboratory members are currently pursuing active projects in Wireless Networks, Computational Epidemiology and Algorithms, Complex Networks and High Performance Computing.
