Eran Agmon is an Assistant Professor at the Center for Cell Analysis and Modeling and the Department of Molecular Biology and Biophysics at the University of Connecticut Health Center. He is the primary developer of Vivarium – a software ecosystem for modular, multiscale modeling in computational biology. This tool aims to enable labs to connect their data, models, and simulators to build more comprehensive models of cells. Eran’s research involves leveraging advanced software methods and combining multi-omics datasets with diverse modeling methods to generate multi-scale simulations. He is interested in applying these approaches to build simulations of cellular ecosystems that span molecular to multi-cellular and environmental scales.
He was previously a postdoctoral scientist at Stanford University’s Department of Bioengineering as part of the Covert Lab, a postdoc at Columbia University’s Department of Biological Sciences in the Stockwell lab, and a visiting scholar in the Program for Interdisciplinary Studies at The Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. He completed his PhD in Informatics (emphasis in complex systems) and Cognitive Science at Indiana University, where he worked with Randy Beer as part of an NSF IGERT on the Dynamics of Brain-Body-Environment Systems in Behavior and Cognition.
