From Thermodynamics of Computation

**Biography:** I earned my PhD in Physics with John C. Baez at UC Riverside, developing a black-box semantics for open chemical reaction networks using techniques from category theory. I'm currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at NIST working with the Smart Grid team on mitigating complexity in multi-scale modeling.

**Field(s) of Research:** Chemical Reaction Networks, General Non-equilibrium Statistical Physics, Stochastic Thermodynamics, Naturally Occurring Biological Computation
