My main interests are in data analysis for studying dynamical systems. There has been tremendous progress in the development of high throughput analytical chemistry which has resulted in the aggregation of many data sets that capture dynamical features of biological systems. My hope is to help make some sense of it. I will probably do some bioinformatics in the process. My background is in computational science. I also have some training in physics. In the long term I would like to see my work impact progress in global health and development.
