Good News Everyone

I’m happy to say that I was offered and accepted a permanent position with the National Center for Computational Toxicology within the US EPA.  I’ll be primarily working on the Virtual Liver project — an initiative to develop a computer model that can take in vitro toxicological information about an environmentally-relevant compound to determine the likelihood that that compound will cause harm to people.  In particular, I’ll be looking at how to model the spatial extent of the liver by coupling all of the constituent cells appropriately.  Right now it looks like we may be taking a cellular automata or finite state approach.

The cool thing is that my former office mate was also hired into a separate position.  For the first time since 2001 I don’t have an office mate from William and Mary (sorry Brad and Brian), but I’ll try to get by…
