ODIN Analytics and Modeling. 

Hsuan-Wei (Wayne) Lee was a postdoctoral fellow at REACH who received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2016. He is presently an Assistant Research Fellow at the Institute of Sociology, Academia Sinica in Taiwan. Having degrees in mathematics and business, he is an applied mathematician who has a passion for working on interdisciplinary projects. Often using computer simulations and knowledge in graph theory, differential equations, combinatorics, stochastic processes, applied statistics, and machine learning techniques, he investigates all kinds of networks, especially social systems, their characteristics, formation, evolution, and often predictions of system behavior. At REACH, he works on the SNAPT and ODIN projects. With these projects, he focuses on formal and applied mathematical models of dynamic social networks and how simulated versions of these models can be analyzed and understood. He uses languages such as MATLAB, Python, R, and C++.
