I am the Founder and CEO of a digital health company, Medaptive Health, which has created an open source platform for developing and operating app solutions that use CareKit, ResearchKit, or ResearchStack.
Prior to starting Medaptive Health, I was a Research Staff Member and Senior Manager at the IBM Watson Research Center. I also served as Chief Architect for a worldwide research project investigating the confluence of big data, analytics, and pervasive technologies (social and mobile) for our enterprise clients.
I have expertise in both the biological and computer sciences, and an interest in other areas such as physics and mathematics. A unifying thread across all of these is the study of complex adaptive systems. These are systems in which a large number of independent agents interact and adapt, giving rise to interesting emergent behaviors. Examples include the global economy, the immune system, social networks, and insect communities.
This section of the site will feature my thoughts and essays on trends and topics related to my scientific interests.
