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.
