I am a researcher at Sandia National Laboratories.  I also worked briefly in the computer science department at the University of Otago in New Zealand (2012-2013).  My work has revolved around the use of computational techniques to analyze and understand large, high-dimensional scientific datasets.

Much of my work has been in bioinformatics, cheminformatics, and computational biology. However, I have been involved in a wide variety of projects, including: understanding wake-affected turbines in wind farms; detecting anomalous patterns in computer networks; image analysis and distortion; characterizing the topology of molecular conformation space; large-scale graph drawing; inferring genetic networks from time series gene expression measurements; predicting protein interactions from sequence; extrapolating protein networks from protein complexes; predicting protein structure from sequence; designing novel homopolymers with specific properties; designing novel peptide rings to inhibit blood clotting; understanding the genetic basis of leukemia; computing the underlying dimension of image datasets; and identifying superconducting materials.

For specifics on these projects, please see the associated publications and software.
