I work in the areas of systems design and analysis, biomedical informatics, operations research and applying math. I did a good deal of work on many aspects of storage system design. I analyze express lines in the supermarket, airplane boarding policies and lately I am trying to connect them. I am trying to link queueing theory with number theory. Both have modular symmetries appearing in them. One problem is that there are real people waiting a really long time, but I dont know of any p-adic people waiting a p-adically long time. I am exploring optics in space-time geometry and partially ordered sets, trying to built (mathematically) thin focal lenses. I have also started to think about concentration results in high dimensional space-time geometry. Obviously all these interests stem from trying to understand airplane boarding. In biomedical informatics, I would be happy if I could improve healthcare, started working on it recently. I am also exploring autism.
