Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford
Blas is doing his DPhil in Mathematics under the supervision of Prof. Doyne Farmer and Prof. Cameron Hepburn. His interests span mathematical modeling, opinion dynamics, network science, agent-based modeling, complex systems, and dynamical systems. His DPhil focuses on understanding and modeling the discourse beneath the climate-change social system taking a bottom-up approach.
Prior to his DPhil, Blas undertook undergraduate studies in Physics and worked in a Data Science company where he developed scientific programming skills. This, combined with his knowledge of statistical mechanics, dynamical systems, and mathematics, has enabled him to address real-world issues as an employee.
