Joshua J. Daymude is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Center for Biocomputation, Security, and Society at Arizona State University's Biodesign Institute. He completed his PhD in 2021 at the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering (CIDSE) at Arizona State University, advised by Prof. Andr�a W. Richa. His research focuses on the algorithmic foundations of emergent collective behavior, leveraging the theory of distributed computing and randomized algorithms to formally characterize how local interactions induce large-scale phenomena. He is a three-time ARCS Foundation Johnston Endowment Scholar and a CIDSE Dean's Fellow, and received an Honorable Mention in the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program. A full list of his research, publications, teaching, and awards can be found on his website.
