Simon A. Levin Mathematical, Computational and Modeling Sciences Center

The Simon A. Levin Mathematical, Computational and Modeling Sciences Center establishes a forum that brings together a community of quantitative scientists and mathematicians from all corners of the university whose research and scholarship interests are driven by “intellectual fusion.” Center researcher's approach to research and scholarship is solution – rather than discipline – focused.

We seek to bridge the gap among the biological, environmental, and social sciences and the mathematical sciences; promote and support cross-disciplinary and transdisciplinary research that relies on state of the art computational, modeling and quantitative approaches; and train the next generation of computational, mathematical and theoretical scientists whose research is driven by the application of computational, mathematical, modeling and simulation approaches to solve problems that will improve the human condition.

The center emphasizes the training of a new generation of mathematical scientists from diverse backgrounds whose knowledge base allows them to contribute to the solution of problems at the interface of the biological, environmental, and social sciences.
