## Research and other activities

- Asymptotic analysis and numerical simulation with passive tracer problems (partial differential equations)
- Analysis of *omics data associated with host dynamics of infectious disease (L1 regularization; bioinformatic data wrangling)
- Analysis of time series data for within-host dynamics of infectious disease (anomaly detection; health scoring; clustering; multimodal data analysis)
- Algorithm development for applied topological data analysis (mostly interested in generators right now)
- Mathematical modeling, spectral/network methods, machine learning; data visualization
- Tool development associated with small town police accountability (QSIDE's SToPA lab)
- Network models of synchronization; polarization

## Teaching

Short of giving my full teaching history, I generally teach:- Programming for computational mathematics
- Linear algebra, differential equations
- Numerical analysis
- Mathematical modeling

I also have a small thing for integrating historical documents to enrich my teaching and students' learning.
