My research focuses on developing and applying machine learning algorithms and numerical methods from areas of quantum physics, computer science, and mathematics to analyze large, complex medical datasets. When I’m not working out the math or programming, I’m writing poetry, enjoying extreme sports and nature, or volunteering/fundraising for charity or veteran’s organizations. As Alan Turing once said, “The isolated man does not develop any intellectual power… It is necessary for him to be immersed in an environment.”
