Roland Bouffanais
Associate Professor & Director of Graduate Studies
Dr. Roland Bouffanais is Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). He received his Ph.D. from EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) in computational science for which he received the prestigious IBM Research Prize in Computational Sciences (2008) and the ERCOFTAC Da Vinci Award Silver Medal (2007). He has been a postdoctoral fellow and associate at MIT and still is a research associate with the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT. Bouffanais’ research group focuses on fundamental and applied interdisciplinary problems rooted in the field of complexity science. Bouffanais leads a number of active projects at SUTD related to complex networks and self-organizing systems, including swarming systems. He has recently authored a monograph titled “Design and Control of Swarm Dynamics”, published by Springer in their Complexity Series in 2016.

David Mateo
Research Fellow
Dr. Mateo received his PhD in Physics from the University of Barcelona (Spain) under the supervision of Prof. Manuel Barranco. Dr. Mateo studied collective effects in low temperature many-particle systems during his PhD and followed this line of research as a postdoctoral fellow at California State University, Northridge. He joined the Applied Complexity Group at SUTD under the Systems Technology for Autonomous Reconnaissance & Surveillance (STARS) project to study the implications of emergent collective behavior in natural and artificial systems.
