1. My main research effort will be to continue my collaboration with the Data Driven Modeling and Analysis group at LANL. This group works for the most part in the area of image processing. 2. I will continue to work as an investigator on Tom Kepler's NIH contract. My contribution is to provide analyis and parallel computing support for simulations.
