My research interests lie within the fields of commutative and non-commutative probability theory, and their applications in biology and physics. I am particularly interested in the developing theory of stochastic and quantum simulations. My current work with Professors Andrea Arnold and Sarah Olson focuses on developing parameter estimation techniques for stochastic growth models in biology. Other work includes the theory of quantum random walks: extending notions from classical theory to the quantum domain, uses of quantum dynamical entropy and applications to quantum information theory and data compression. At WPI, I teach Engineering Mathematics and courses in the Calculus sequence. Working with students with a variety of interests and expertise is one of the greatest advantages of teaching at WPI.
