I am a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Utah Department of Mathematics. I maintain both academic and commercial pursuits. My academic research studies how the biophysical dynamics of the nervous system processes information. My business, Longtail Consulting, provides data mining and probabilistic modelling solutions for commercial applications.
