I’m a computer scientist interested in complex systems, where chains of cause and effect can be difficult to establish.

In my research I build the computational tools needed to study these systems at scale, which includes using simulators and cloud computing solutions; develop better ways to understand them using advanced analytical techniques; and work on integrating sensors to incorporate real-world, real-time data to build “digital twins”.

I write about various topics in science, computing, research practice, and books, and develop software in (mainly) Python and Lisp.
