Innovation Happens at the Intersection of Disciplines

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher @Northeastern University, Physics Department, #BarabasiLab, Boston. I am @Purdue and @IllinoisTech alumni.

Currently, I am focused on developing innovative and data-driven solutions to #FixFood and #FoodSystems. I am investigating how ultra-processing food impacts our society culturally, economically, physiologically, and healthfully.

In my spare time, I explore syntactic changes in Germanic languages using complex network theory to uncover patterns in language evolution by observing the emergence of syntax through centuries of abstraction-exchange among humans.

My ultimate goal is to encourage innovative thinking, eco-system thinking, network thinking to promote the exploration of complex systems.
