Research Interests

My current focus has been on developing tools for studying dynamical systems theory. Systems theory originated in mathematics and physics where much of the methodology and statistics are built around being able to measure a widget thousands of times and doing so for many widgets. This is just not true in psychology, thus the tools do not simply translate over.

Opportunities For Students

I am currently looking for graduate students and a post doc interested in the quantitative aspects of dynamical systems theory. I work closely with several interdisciplinary teams to examine complex behavior and am currently working to have both cutting edge and approachable methods for doing systems analyses.
