I am a statistician, mathematician, and physicist with a passion for research… I often start research projects in my spare time just because I am curious about something

I have a background in data mining, applied statistics, and high performance computing, and this toolbox of skills has happily been suited to many different endeavors. In recent years I have published papers and/or embarked on research in epidemiology, biology, physics, applied statistics, criminology, terrorism informatics, and archeoastronomy. Quite a few of my most recent papers have focused on the field of computational epidemiology; in particular computer modelling of influenza pandemics.

On this website I share information and computational tools related to my research endeavors, along with many links to helpful documents I have come across on the Internet. I will also be sharing a lot of material related to lectures and seminars I give in statistical and computational methods. Thus many of the posts on this site will have a “lecturing” tone… because they *are* part of a lecture. The material on this web site isn’t meant to constitute a blog.

I hope that readers will find the information I post here useful.
