Professor of Systems Science and Director, Clinical Science and Engineering Research Laboratory, Binghamton University, State University of New York

As a professor of systems science where my teaching and research are focused on how to understand complex systems and use this understanding to alter the trajectory of complex systems, with a particular emphasis on economic development and health systems.

As Director of the Clinical Science and Engineering Research Lab, our focus is on medical/healthcare device development. This work is motivated through an understanding of human physiology from a complex systems perspective, or how coupling in biological systems gives rise to emergent behaviors such as adaptation, growth, remodeling and repair. More specifically, our research addresses the question of how biophysical factors influence coupled physiologic systems, which sets the stage for us to investigate innovative approaches for addressing chronic health conditions which are based in mal-adaptation such as chronic pain, chronic fatigue, heart failure, osteoporosis, age related dementia, etc.
