Current Projects

  • Simons Math + X This is a ten year project in collaboration with the California NanoSystems Institute and the Department of Mechanical Engineering. We are working on microfluidics applications.
  • Knowledge Graphs We are developing mathematical methods and theory for analyzing data organized on knowledge graphs.
  • COVID-19 I am doing research related to modeling the spread of COVID-19.
  • Subgraph Isomorphisms We are looking at subgraph isomorphisms on multichannel networks
  • We are working with a community organization in Los Angeles, the Gang Reduction Youth Development program.
  • We are part of a collaborative project on deep learning, with Univ. and UC Irvine.
