Research & Publications
My research is primarily computational and theoretical in nature. Which is not to say I do not enjoy observing (I do) and I certainly work with observers! I tend to abide by Einstein's motto -- "Imagination is more important than knowledge." Knowledge is of course vital, but in this day where knowledge is at one's fingertips, it is important to know how to apply that knowledge, and to think of new and challenging questions.
