Daniel Kornhauser is currently working in perception, design, and analysis of Agent Based Modeling (ABM) visualizations in NetLogo. He became interested in design while pursuing his Masters in Sciences at the MIT Media Laboratories, where he created Computer Assisted Design software for the creation of copper craft ornamental patterns in non industrial settings. This lead to a research position at TELMEX here he worked for a year in the Center for Digital Culture on initiatives to bridge the Digital Divide in Mexico: computer community centers, last mile connectivity in rural settings and educational robotics workshops. Before attending MIT he pursued an Electrical Engineering Bachelors and a Ma in Computer Science at UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico). He is currently a Computer Science PhD Candiate at Northwestern University. He enjoys salsa dancing, running and traveling.

William Rand is a an assistant professor of Marketing, Decision, Operations, and Information Technology, and Computer Science at the University of Maryland. He is also the Director of Research for the Center for Complexity in Business. His interests center around the application of complex systems tools, like agent-based modeling, social network analysis, machine learning, and geographic information systems, to a wide variety of domains areas, such as, diffusion of innovation, evolution of cooperation, Web 2.0, and human-environmental interactions. Dr. Rand completed his dissertation in 2005 at the University of Michigan under John Holland and Rick Riolo on the use of genetic algorithms in dynamic environments, and went on to become a postdoctoral fellow at the Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems (NICO) before his current position. He has presented at conferences worldwide and has significant experience teaching hands-on agent-based modeling.
