Santiago Nuñez-Corrales Defends Dissertation

Doctoral Candidate Santiago Nuñez-Corrales successfully defended his dissertation, “A Generalized Theory of Interactions and Related Computational Infrastructure for their Universal and Efficient Investigation”, on September, 30th. Program Area: Cognitive Science and Language Processing Research: My current research work is aimed at understanding Complex Multiscale Stochastic Systems -systems with irreducible noise that can be described at multiple scales and are thermodynamically irreversible- by focusing on interactions rather than dynamics or trajectories through stochastic methods, and creating cyberinfrastructure embodying principles derived from this view. Such cyberinfrastructure is under development to find new synergistic drug targets against energy deregulation and apoptosis avoidance in pancreatic cancer and to help design experiments capable of testing theories of quantum gravity.
