Hi, I'm Andy. I'm a theoretical and computational scientist in NYC. I build mathematical models to better understand complex social and biological systems. Also I teach scientific computing.

What Andy Does

Human Disease Genetics

To what extent do genes contribute to human disease? What can genetics say about the underlying mechanisms of disease?

Mathematical Modeling

I build models of social and biological systems to better understand how they [the systems] work.

Theoretical Ecology

How do communities change over time? What features of an ecosystem determine its behaviour? Can systems be controlled by design?

Parallel and Distributed Computing

I develop new tools for faster and more efficient analysis of large datasets.

Clean Code

Andy has written computational software as an engineer, researcher, and consultant. Also, teaches scientific computing and tries to consistently build correct, efficient, and reliable systems.

Data Analysis

9+ years of experience. Previous work includes: time series forecasting, natural language processing, computer vision, social and biological network analysis, sequence analysis, distribution fitting, parametric and nonparametric methods.

Modeling + Simulation

5+ years of experience in mathematical and statistical modeling. i.e. Generative model of complex genetic architectures; discriminative model of acute nosocomial organ failure; dynamical systems model of molecular signaling cascades.

Scientific Computing

Numerical analysis and optimization. Monte Carlo methods. Distributed systems, including multithreaded and multiprocess architectures. Messaging with sockets, MPI, and ZeroMQ. GPU programming in OpenCL and CUDA. HPC environments.
