I am a statistician and mathematical modeler.

My background is in stochastic modeling of population-level phenomena,

and development of computational statistical methods

to perform inference under uncertainty.

I have a broad interest in stochastic modeling

of complex systems and statistical theory.

**My current work is focused on:**

Mathematical and statistical aspects of metascience.

I use statistical theory, mathematical modeling,

and simulations to investigate:

- How scientific processes of accumulating knowledge work,

- How sciences progress,

- What is the role of reproducibility of scientific findings in advancing knowledge.

My life time collaborator in this endeavor is Professor Berna Devezer.
