Short Bio

Welcome!  This site hopefully details personal and informal professional interests of mine.  Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in Biomedical Informatics at Stony Brook University (working closely with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center).  My particular area of research lies on the intersection of geometry, statistics, and control as applied to a myriad of problems in mathematical oncology, shape analysis, systems biology, machine learning, network science, and computer vision.  If you are an interested PhD student starting (or plan) to attend Stony Brook University and possess a strong mathematical and computational background, feel free to email about potential opportunities within my research group.   That said, hopefully this website will dually serve as an outlet for an important collaborator of mine, June (pictured left) given she is to busy chasing tennis balls!
