Personal profile

Artistic and research interests

I'm interested in understanding the world around us through networks describing how things are connected. Through the structure of these connections, we can understand some aspects of how a system works—it could be the spread of opinions among people, the interactions between organizations concerning climate change, the synchronization of power grids, and many other topics. My work is interdisciplinary and in collaboration with researchers from the social sciences, medicine, engineering, and more. I use tools from data science, mathematics, and computational modeling.
