Why data science? When trying to quantify and make predictions about complex systems, more data enables us to make more refined and more accurate inferences. However, taking a vast quantity of data and making meaning out of it requires the thoughtful application of data science methods.

Human behavior is exactly the kind of complex system that can be better understood by combining large quantities of data from a variety of sources. The Presidential Fellows project I am working on with Erfan will obtain psychophysiologic data, from multiple sources, in real time. The application of data science methods will be crucial for deriving meaning and generating working models behavior from this wealth of information.

Research Interests: Psychophysiology, neuroscience, and mood and anxiety disorders.
