Jonathan Ozik

Senior Fellow

Biography

Jonathan Ozik is a Computational Scientist and Agent-based Modeling Section lead in the Social and Behavioral Systems Group within the Global Security Sciences Division at Argonne National Laboratory and a Senior Fellow in the Computation Institute at The University of Chicago. Dr. Ozik's research focus is on the development and application of agent-based computational modeling techniques and large scale distributed computational methods to advance the modeling of complex systems. He has applied computational methods across many different subject matter areas, including infectious diseases, healthcare, biological modeling, supply chains and natural resource management. He is the project lead for the Repast agent-based modeling suite, Argonne's widely-used free and open source agent-based modeling toolkit. He is also the founder and project lead for the Extreme-scale Model Exploration with Swift (EMEWS) framework, which enables large-scale, dynamic model exploration on high-performance computing resources.

Dr. Ozik received his Ph.D. in Physics from the Chaos and Nonlinear Dynamics Group at the University of Maryland in 2005. He is the author of numerous publications, including book chapters, journal articles, conference proceedings, and seminars and has conducted agent-based modeling courses and tutorials for a wide audience of subject matter experts, including various government agencies, academic institutions, and private industry.
