Research Overview

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the U.S. EPA in RTP, NC. I support several projects in computational toxicology, bioinformatics, and biological/mathematical modeling.

My most mature work is a new information theoretic approach to quantifying network development in cultures of neural cells grown on microelectrode arrays (MEA’s). The paper on this topic is currently under review.

Other projects include:

  • A behavioral model for detecting abnormalities in zebrafish exposed to developmentally neurotoxic compounds.
  • A geometrically based processing technique for classification and prioritization of toxicity effects from large datasets of concentration response values.
  • A custom implementation of NCCT’s ToxCast pipeline for our developmental neurotoxicity program.
