Dr. Joshua Daymude joins the Biodesign Center for Biocomputing, Security, and Society, and shares an appointment with ASU's School of Computing and Augmented Intelligence.
He completed his PhD in 2021 at the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering (CIDSE) at ASU. Prior to his professorship, he was a Mistletoe
Research Fellow at the Momental Foundation, a three-time ARCS Foundation Johnston Endowment Scholar and a CIDSE Dean's Fellow.
Daymude's wide ranging research connects distributed computing theory to collective and emergent behavior. His work involves areas of computer science such as distributed computing, stochastic processes, swarm intelligence and bio-inspired algorithms. His interdisciplinary approach encompasses theoretical immunology, microbiomic ecology, active matter physics, dynamic networks and programmable matter systems. The research will explore the potential of distributed computing theory to "help solve unanswered questions about distributed systems in biology and society," Daymude says. "The Biodesign Institute offers a perfect interdisciplinary enviroment to pursue this research, where I can learn from and lend my expertise to biological and social research areas outside of computer science."
