Biography: 

Adam Lampert is an assistant professor with the School of Human Evolution and Social Change (2015 - present) and Mathematical Computational and Modeling Science Center at Arizona State University. He completed his doctorate at the Department of Physics of Complex Systems, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel (2012).

One of his current major research interests is on how to manage ecosystems by multiple agents. Lampert's approach includes mathematical modeling of the dynamics of the ecosystem as well as the control by the agents.
