I’m Vítor Sudbrack, Brazilian scientist. I’m currently a PhD candidate at the University of Lausanne (UNIL, Switzerland), working at the Theoretical Evolutionary Ecology lab with professor Charles Mullon. :switzerland:

I have a Master degree in Physics (2021) by the Institute of Theoretical Physics (IFT - Unesp) in São Paulo, Brazil, with a sandwich period at the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems (IFISC - UiB) in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. In my thesis, I studied population dynamics in highly fragmented landscapes :brazil: :es:

I was laureated Bachelor in Physics with honors (2019) by the Institute of Physics of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in Porto Alegre, southern Brazil. :1st_place_medal:

Studying and researching has allowed me knowing many nice people, many interesting places and many awesome wonders of this universe. I share for science the same feeling Lise Meitner described to physics in her following quote :thought_balloon:

I love physics with all my heart. It is a kind of personal love, as one has for a person to whom one is grateful for many things.
Lise Meitner

My scientific interests

I am mostly interested in (macroscopic) mathematical biology, for instance modeling population dynamics, ecological and evolutionary processes, and complex systems. Also, I enjoy some mathematical monsters puzzles from nonlinear differential equations, graph theory, numerical methods. Much of my quick investigations are saved here as code tutorials.

I love giving seminars and telling people about my research and other interesting things, specially for outreach purposes. Hence, invitations are always welcome by email!

I like to think I create universes on a computer screen…, but 95% percent of the job is pogramming and looking at data on this same computer screen hahah :joy:

Previous works

My Master thesis was done at IFT under the supervision of professors Roberto A. Kraenkel and Renato M. Coutinho. Together, we numerically studied population dynamics in highly fragmented landscapes. We explored the effects of fragmentation and habitat spatial features into species and ecological systems. You can read much more about it here.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, I joined an Observatory - a collection of scientists from very complementary backgrounds aiming to understand and analyze the data from COVID-19 in Brazil. We performed nowcasting and developed modelings. You can take a look at the website itself, or a personal English report of this experience here.

During my undergraduate years, I have researched at the Fluid Lab - IMPA with professor Alexei Mailybaev in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. There, we studied fully developed bidimensional turbulence in the case of Kelvin-Helmholtz instability :ocean:. And I worked as well at the Laboratory for Cellular Structure (LabCel - UFRGS), where I described the statistical time evolution of a mathematical model for protein interaction using graphs. Since then, I am working with mathematical biology, uncracking the puzzles of life with mathematical lensing!
