Miguel B. Araújo was awarded a prestigious visiting scholarship to the Theoretical Sciences Visiting Program at the Okinawa Institute for Science and Technology (OIST). OIST has no departments with research groups being the building blocks from which all activities are structured.

Taking advantage of this interdisciplinary set up, Miguel B: Araújo expects to liaise with ecology and complex systems groups at OIST: “I will use this quality time to start writing a book I have had in mind for some time, while engaging with the OIST research community with a spirit of building collaborations within OIST and across OIST and my group in Europe. At a first glance, I can see shared research interests with the units of biodiversity and biocomplexity, biological complexity, biological non-linear dynamics data science, integrative community ecology, machine learning and data science, and marine climate change, amongst others“.
