Welcome to my professional webpage! I am an Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at Trinity College. While my interests include a wide range of natural sciences, at heart I'm really a mathematician who likes to work on both theoretical and applied problems. Generally, these problems fall under the umbrella of nonlinear dynamics, stochastic processes, and complex networks. For more information about my research, check out my
research interests and publications. In addition to writing papers and giving presentations about my research, I also design software that can be used for both research and educational purposes. For some personal information about me, click here.
