Graduate student Elizabeth Roberto has been awarded the 2014 James S. McDonnell Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship Award in Studying Complex Systems for her research on the spatial dynamics of social inequality in U.S. Cities. The award is intended to support scholarship and research directed toward the development of theoretical and mathematical tools contributing to the science of complex, adaptive, nonlinear systems. The $200,000 fellowship will fund Elizabeth’s postdoctoral research, which aims to bring the social complexity of cities into sharper focus and to develop new theoretical insights about cities that integrate the rich history of social science knowledge with a view of cities as complex adaptive systems. Congratulations, Liz!
