Biography

Joel Nishimura received his Ph.D from Cornell University in 2013.  Dr. Nishimura conducts research in Dynamical Systems, Mathematical Networks, and Decentralized Coordination.  His Ph.D thesis focused on decentralized coordination and addressing the simplest manner in which a disparate number of actors with limited information can coordinate their timing. Recent publications include: "Restreaming Graph Partitioning: Simple Versatile Algorithms for Advanced Balancing" and "Probabilistic convergence guarantees for type-II pulse-coupled oscillators".   Additionally, he maintains a scholarly interest in Game Theory and Algorithms.

In his free time Dr. Nishimura enjoys cooking, hiking and the Arizona weather. His office is CLCC 269.
