I am a complex systems scientist. I study complex biological systems, particularly those arising in systems biology, systems neuroscience, and cognitive science. I am the originator of “Sloppy Models,” a theory of parameter space geometry in large nonlinear models with many underdetermined parameters. I have studied networks in molecular biology, neuroimaging, and cognitive science. I employ methodology from dynamical systems, network theory, Bayesian and nonparametric statistics, computational biology, and statistical signal processing. I employ of mix of data-driven and model-driven approaches. My work is tightly connected to experimental data, and I have many productive collaborations with experimentalists.
