Innovation Happens at the Intersection of Disciplines
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.
What's been going on
Jan 2021: I have been invited to serve on the program committee of the Fourth Northeast Regional Conference on Complex Systems NERCCS2021
December 2020: My collaborator @n_jovano and I were invited to talk about the Impact of Plate Size on Food Waste on MEIRER Talks Trash Podcast! [YouTube Link]. I am so grateful for having this opportunity.
on such an impactful problem during my PhD. A great ending to 2020 and kickoff 2021, happy new year everyone!!
