Martin Fraas is a mathematical physicist. He was born in Czechoslovakia and received his M.A. and PhD. degrees from Charles University in Prague. He had postdoctoral positions in the Technion (Israel) and ETH (Switzerland). Martin's first position in the US was in Virginia Tech, where he was an Assistant Professor in the mathematics department up until his move to UC Davis math department. Within mathematical physics, he focuses on studying the mathematical structures of quantum mechanics. He worked on open quantum systems, adiabatic theory, and quantum estimation theory. Most recently, his work focuses on topological phases of matter, a topic originating in condensed matter physics, and quantum trajectories, a topic originating in quantum optics.

Fernanda Valdovinos is a theoretical ecologist and network scientist. She recently joined (July 1st 2020) UC Davis as Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy, and before then she was Assistant Professor in the University of Michigan’s Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and the Center for the Study of Complex Systems since January 2018. Her group studies the structure and dynamics of ecological networks at ecological and evolutionary scales; including their resilience to biodiversity loss, biological invasions, climate change, and exploitation by humans. Her main research lines include plant-pollinator systems and food-webs, which she studies using a combination of mathematical and computational approaches. Valdovinos got her PhD in 2014 on Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Chile, and then conducted her postdoc studies at the University of Arizona and spent part of her postdoc time at UC Berkeley.
