An article co-authored in fall 2010 by Bonsu Osei, associate professor of math and computer science, and published a year ago, has been named the best of the "top articles" in the scientific domain of ecological modeling. The article, titled, "Modeling Invasive Species Spread in Lake Champlain via Evolutionary Computations," was published in the June 2011 edition of "Theory Biosci."
"Top articles" means the most relevant of the 20 articles in the field published on the same topic since Osei's article was published. "I wrote this paper when I was on sabbatical in Ghana, working on a malaria project," said Osei. "It was work I did on the side, and is based on my Ph.D thesis, but with newer experiments and ideas that have come up since I wrote the thesis." The co-authors are Daniel Bentil, professor of mathematics at the University of Vermont; James Hoffmann, professor of Sustainability Studies Program at Stonybrook University in New York; and Chris Ellingwood, a Vermont-based computer programmer who worked with Osei on the simulations.
