Objective

When I worked in academia, my research focused on using computational and mathematical models to understand perception, decisions, and social interaction.

Although I currently work in the private sector, I maintain ongoing connections and research projects in the academic community. This page is an archive of my academic research and modeling work. For a resume of my current work in the corporate world, on business intelligence and statistical marketing and operations analysis, please check out my profile on LinkedIn.
