My research investigates robustness and fragility tradeoffs, dynamics, and feedback in complex, highly connected systems, and develops computational multiscale models to capture important small-scale interactions and predict large-scale behavior. I combine development of mechanistic models with data driven techniques to address multidisciplinary research challenges, including dynamics of earthquake faults, wildfire propagation and disaster response, biomaterials, infectious disease, network neuroscience, and group decision making under stress.
