Background

I attended Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) where I received a bachelor's in physics, mathematics, and music, and a PhD in applied mathematics. 

Research

My research focuses on Bayesian inference and optimization, the statistics of random structures in graphs as revealed by topological analysis, non-equilibrium stochastic processes, and population evolution/training in games and reinforcement learning. I collaborate with labs in artificial intelligence, computational neuroscience, ecology and biophysics.
