I began my career in diffusion limited growth, non-linear growth processes, and multifractal scaling. My career in IBM Research has afforded the opportunity to explore ways to search for molecules in databases by constructing hash-keys from orientation-invariant descriptions of electric fields and other determinants of chemical activity, to epidemiology, genetic epidemiology, phylogeography, and bioinformatics.
