From Santa Fe Institute Events Wiki

I am a Postdoc. in Morrison Institute for Population and Resource Studies of Stanford University. I received my Ph.D. from Xi’an Jiaotong University in 2002. My research interests include artificial algorithms and simulation. Now, my researches focus on the social network analysis and modeling for the cultural transmission during the process of rural-urban migration in China.
