I am a Professor of Physics at Lycoming College. My research focuses on nonlinear and complex systems.

**Research Interests**

- Nonlinear Time Series Analysis
- Ordinal Symbolization (Bandt-Pompe Methodology)
- Ordinal Transition Networks
- Distinguishing between different dynamical behaviors

- Machine Learning
- Using ML for time series characterization and prediction
- Using ML to solve problems in the natural and social sciences

- Complex Systems
- Using ML to design intelligent agent-based models
- Dynamics on networks

- Economics
- the effect of taxation and redistribution on the distribution of wealth
