My research interests include theoretical computer science; randomized algorithms; Markov chains; approximate sampling and counting; discrete geometry; discrete mathematics; emergent behavior; programmable matter; statistical physics; the cluster expansion; and the mathematics of redistricting. More details on my previous work using Markov chains to develop distributed algorithms for programmable matter, including simulations, can be found on our research group's website.
