Music I've composed

A listing of the music I've written can be found at the music page. If Only - The Musical and An Empty Box of People were much bigger projects, so they get their own pages.

Research interests

“What are the important problems of your field? ... If you do not work on an important problem, it's unlikely you'll do important work.”
            –Richard Hamming

In general, I am interested in using mathematical and computational tools (especially those of complexity theory) to understand the brain. Right now, I am looking for biomarkers and early detection methods for psychiatric disorders.
