**TBA**

**Speaker Bio:**<
/p>

**Daniel Abrams has broad scientific interests ranging from couple
d oscillators to mathematical geoscience to the physics of social systems.
He tries to approach these wide-ranging problems by creating greatly simp
lified mathematical models where rigorous analysis is possible\, hopefully
capturing some essential properties of the system. The work in different
fields is generally connected by similar mathematical techniques drawn fro
m the study of nonlinear dynamics. \;**
