I occasionally update my scientific blog.


A listing of the music I’ve composed can be found at the music page. If Only - The Musical and An Empty Box of People were much bigger projects, so they get their own pages.

Research interests

“What are the important problems of your field? … If you do not work on an important problem, it’s unlikely you’ll do important work.”
            –Richard Hamming

I am interested in using mathematical, statistical, and computational tools to understand the brain.
