To branch out into new areas, I have worked on diverse projects outside of my main research program. Two of these projects are broadly related to stochastic processes: applying a dynamical-systems approach to noise-induced tipping and reframing pattern formation using piecewise-deterministic Markov processes. My other projects involve building network, agent-based, and hybrid models to investigate disease spread, intracellular transport, and tumor growth, respectively. My work on modeling intracellular transport is ongoing.
