I am an Associate Research Professor at the
Laboratory (ARL) at Penn State. In the broadest
possible sense, my work is in applied dynamical systems and
optimization. Some of my work is on applied statistics on
(real-world) dynamical systems. Recently I've been focusing
on evolutionary game theory as a way of studying complex
From 2015 - 2017, I took a long break from ARL and taught
at the United States Naval
Academy. I also teach courses at Penn State in the Math Department, where I have a
courtesy appointment. I also hold a courtesy appointment in the
Harold and Inge Marcus Dept. of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering.
In the past, I was a Wigner Fellow in the Computational Sciences and Engineering Division of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory
