My work and that of my group centers around trying to understand the organization of matter in space and time, particularly in characterizing shape and flow at the everyday scale, and is thus closely tied in with experience and experiments. We have a small lab for tinkering around. Past work has explored problems at the intersection of mathematics and classical continuum/statistical physics, subjects with enormous explanatory power and veins that runs deep.

While I maintain an interest in these subjects, more recently I have become fascinated by the possibility of using quantitative approaches in biology, medicine and beyond.
