Publications

I find that writing about what I do helps me to organize my thoughts, clarify my motivations, and pushes me become a better communicator overall. I am fortunate to have had many opportunities to work with excellent people on challenging projects, and to have participated in the preparation of publications describing those efforts. An up-to-date list of publications I have either led or participated in can be found here.
