Juniper Lovato
Director of Partnerships and External Programs
UVM Complex Systems Center
@juniperlov

At the Vermont Complex Systems Center, Juniper works across generations and geographical limits to make resources and knowledge on cutting-edge complexity science more accessible to those with a hunger and curiosity for learning and exploration. Juniper came to Burlington in 2018. She previously served as the Director of Education for the Santa Fe Institute, an independent complexity science research center. She is also a co-founder of MAKE Santa Fe, a not-for-profit community makerspace in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Juniper received her Master’s in the Western Classics from St. John’s College in 2013 where she completed a thesis on the nature of pleasure in work in Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics.

Laurent Hébert-Dufresne
CNWW Director
@LHDnets

Assistant Professor, University of Vermont Department of Computer Science; Member, The Vermont Complex Systems Center

Laurent studies the interaction of structure and dynamics. His research involves network theory, statistical physics and nonlinear dynamics along with their applications in epidemiology, ecology, biology, and sociology. Recent projects include comparing complex networks of different nature, the coevolution of human behavior and infectious diseases, understanding the role of forest shape in determining stability of tropical forests, as well as the impact of echo chambers in political discussions.

Antoine Allard
CNWW Director
@all_are

Assistant professor, Département de physique, de génie physique et d'optique, Université Laval, Québec, Canada

Antoine's research combines statistical mechanics, graph theory, nonlinear dynamics and geometry to develop mathematical models of complex networks and to study the structure/function relationship specific to complex systems. His recent projects involve the mapping of real complex networks unto hyperbolic space to characterize the evolution of international trade, the use of greedy routing to unveil the spatial organization of the brain at various scales and across species, and the analytical solution of percolation on networks with a strong induced core-periphery structure to assess the potential of the Zika virus as a sexually transmitted infection.

Jean-Gabriel Young
CNWW Mentor
@jgyou

Assistant professor, Department of Computer Science, University of Vermont

I am a Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science of The University of Vermont, VT, USA. I also hold an appointment at the Vermont Complex Systems Center. My research is at the intersection of statistical inference and complex systems.

Previously, I was a James S. McDonnell Foundation Fellow at the Center for the Study of Complex Systems of the University of Michigan, where I was mentored by Prof. Mark Newman. I obtained my PhD in Physics from Université Laval, under the guidance of Prof. Louis J. Dubé and Prof. Patrick Desrosiers.
