I am a versatile technologist with solid experience in web development and turning ideas into products. I have a strong affinity for products designed on principles and involving complex data.
Designed the vision; architected, built, ran the product; and managed the team behind sci.pe. sci.pe re-invented the scholarly publishing platform and was the first company to help publishers and journals transition to web-first publishing.
Developed the infrastucture necessary to build a public library of models of the dynamic processes of infectious disease spread and control, usable on demand from a web browser.
Work samples: GitHub repository, article on Spatial Transmission of 2009 Pandemic Influenza in the US
Developed statistical and computational methods needed to achieve inference, prediction, and predictability of disease spreading in complex techno-social systems.
Work samples: article on The role of weather on the relation between influenza and influenza-like illness
My thesis focused on the melding of immunodynamics, epidemiology and evolutionary biology. I used a combination of mathematical and statistical approaches to understand the processes driving outbreak dynamics and the wide range of pathogen phylogenies observed at scales from individual host to populations. Developements focused on influenza, dengue and HIV.
Ecology, Biodiversity and Evolution, speciality Theoretical Ecology and Modeling.
France’s top post graduate engineering school for agronomy and life sciences.
Developed an analytical model focusing on spatial scale disparity in predator-prey interactions.
Developed a statistical model to study the impact of land use changes on suspended matter flow in a small agricultural watershed of North Vietnam.
Modeled functional response in consumer resources dynamics.
Founded Journal for the Planet to provide a medium that policy makers and global citizens can leverage to better understand and solve the environmental issues of our time.
Perpetual board pumping techniques were invented centuries ago by Polynesian and Hawaiian surfers, and when I am not working, you can find me surfing, kitsurfing or exploring the art of using motions of the body to propel a skateboard for long distances without putting foot to ground, sometimes with the help of a rattan pole.
