research overview

  • My research is broadly focused on developing statistical and computational methods to analyze and model the emergence of regularities in complex biological and social systems, particularly using large or complex data sets. This work is highly interdisciplinary and includes large-scale organization of complex networks, biological models of macroevolution, and mathematical patterns in violent conflict. It draws heavily on the use tools of computer science, physics and statistics.
