NIMBioS supports short-term visitors to NIMBioS for periods up to one week to assist their efforts in carrying out research that conforms to the mission of NIMBioS to foster research at the interface between mathematics and biology. NIMBioS no longer provides financial support for Sabbatical Fellows, but is open to requests for self-supported visits not needing financial support lasting up to several months duration, with the length of stay determined by the objectives of the proposed project.

Sarah Drohan (Applied Mathematics, Princeton Univ.)
Project Title: Hunting as an optimal stopping problem in indiscriminate harvesting systems
Sarah Drohan is collaborating on a project with NIMBioS postdoctoral fellow Charlotte Chang on predicting threshold value of body mass under which it is not optimal for a hunter to shoot.
Visit Dates: January 15-26, 2018
Ben Levy (Mathematics, Fitchburg State Univ.)
Ben Levy is collaborating with Suzanne Lenhart, Orou Gauoe, and Christina Edholm on a project to develop models of plant and insect communities in Benin. He is also collaborating on a project with Lenhart, Edholm and Daniel Burton to develop elephant population models using data from Amboselli Park, Kenya.
