My research is in Dynamic Systems. I am particularly interested in the manner of which Biological Systems resolve problems in dynamics, and learn to apply those concepts to Engineering, Medical and Biosystems problems.

• Rate Control of Chaos (patented)
This project uses a method of control to limit the nonlinear dynamics of complex control problems into stable control domains. Applications in the areas of lasers, combustion engines, HVAC, wind turbines, and bioreactors.A physical proof of concept of a RCC diesel engine is available.
• Biodynamical Research Project
This project explores the use of computational criticality of nonlinear dynamic systems to control the dynamics of biological systems, with the aim of addressing problems in medicine, engineering and software development.
