Josh is currently a research assistant in the laboratory of Dr. Patrick Reeves. His particular interests are at the interface of mathematics and biology. He was a student intern at VIC in the summer of 2017, where he studied clustering algorithms and their application to mass cytometry data. Currently, he is interested in topological data analysis and image analysis. His interest in topological data analysis stems from its potential to be insensitive to chosen metrics on noisy and sometimes unpredictable biological datasets. Technological advancements in image acquisition add a layer of spatial information that has the potential to uncover cell-cell and cell-environment interactions. Josh is interested in mathematically modelling these interactions in order to provide insight to the cell microenvironment.
