Carl Simon is Professor of Mathematics, Economics, and Public Policy. His research interests center around mathematical models which involve natural dynamics or motion over time. He has applied dynamic modeling to the movements of an economy over time, the spread of AIDS, and the evolution of biological and economic systems. Carl has also conducted research on how political office holders manipulate economic parameters to achieve their goals. In May 1999, the University established the Center for the Study of Complex Systems and appointed Carl director. He is co-author of a textbook Mathematics for Economists. Carl teaches calculus and operations research at the Ford School. He received his Ph.D. from Northwestern University.
