Research/Career Interests: 

I am a complex systems scientist.  I study complex biological systems, particularly those arising in systems biology, systems neuroscience, and cognitive science.  I am the originator of “Sloppy Models,” a theory of parameter space geometry in large nonlinear models with many underdetermined parameters. I have studied networks in molecular biology, neuroimaging, and cognitive science.  I employ methodology from dynamical systems, network theory, Bayesian and nonparametric statistics, computational biology, and statistical signal processing.  I employ a mix of data-driven and model-driven approaches.  My work is tightly connected to experimental data, and I have many productive collaborations with experimentalists.
