I am a statistician and mathematical modeler.
My background is in stochastic modeling of population-level phenomena,
and development of computational statistical methods
to perform inference under uncertainty.
I have a broad interest in stochastic modeling
of complex systems and statistical theory.

My current work is focused on:

Mathematical and statistical aspects of metascience.
I use statistical theory, mathematical modeling,
and simulations to investigate:

- How scientific processes of accumulating knowledge work,
- How sciences progress,
- What is the role of reproducibility of scientific findings in advancing knowledge.

My life time collaborator in this endeavor is Professor Berna Devezer.
