At the Azimuth project I am writing blog articles, starting with a series on Petri net programming. My plan is to study math and science and then teach it to colleagues in software development. We need more scientists to solve the myriad of problems that beset the human race, and the world of programmers provides a large recruitment base for the sciences. In the process I hope to develop myself as a scientist!
I am a statistician and engineer working for Akamai Technologies. I live with my wife, Claire, in Westwood, MA. I did undergraduate physics at Providence College, and received a Masters in E.E. and Computer science from MIT. I worked 17 at IBM in their Federal Systems Division, developing software for embedded systems, but, later, doing test engineering of quantitative software for avionics. I’ve run my own business, worked as a database developer, both on contract and for universities, and joined Akamai in 2007 in their Cambridge, MA headquarters.
At the Azimuth project I am writing blog articles and hope to collaborate on quantitative and statistical problems pertaining to climate and combating environmental degradation. I am also keenly interested in models of the Internet and users on it.
“Warming slowdown? (part 1 of 2)” The idea of a global warming slowdown or hiatus is critically examined, emphasizing the literature, the datasets, and means and methods for telling such. Also available at the Azimuth Project wiki.

“Bayesian inversion of commingled tonnage of municipal solid waste to isolate components” Bayesian inversion to recover latent components in mixtures is a standard technique, with wide application. Yet, apparently, it is not well known. Frequentist methods for doing this are known as algorithms for blind source separation.
