Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor at Baylor College of Medicine. Here is my BCM Profile. I am also a part-time lecturer at Rice University.
My interests are in computational mathematics and physiology, with a focus on the cardiovascular system.
Here is my CV and my google scholar.
My twin brother David is faculty at the University of Texas at Austin and Director of Policy Analytics at the Salem Center. Here is his website.
