Research Experience

I study optimal control with the Neurobiology Engineering Laboratory at Western Michigan University, directed by Damon Miller.  I also study nonlinear neural response with Duane Nykamp. I have also studied computational models of early stages of visual processing with Mike Shelley and Bob Shapley . I have also studied qualitative behavior of generalizations of the Toda Lattice with Tony Bloch and Michael Gekhtman .
