Katherine Anne Bulan

Class of 2012


Katherine is an undergraduate student at University of the Philippines. She is studying for a BS in Applied Physics and is looking forward to a research career involving epidemic spreading and biological networks. In the future, she aims to use her research as a means to push for solutions for environmental and social issues, especially in her country.

Project: Two-Dimensional Totalistic Cellular Automata with Non-local Neighborhoods

My project deals with totalistic two-dimensional cellular automata with non-local symmetric and non-symmetric neighborhoods. The behavior of the rules of a five-neighborhood and two-color cellular automata were studied as well as their three-dimensional evolutions through time. The space-time cross sections of these evolutions were also examined to determine the behavior of these rules. Further examination was done with three-color cellular automata.
