Mark Buller

About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the computer science department at Brown University advised by Chad Jenkins. I am also a Principal Investigator for the Biophysics and Biomedical Modeling Division at the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine (USARIEM). My research interest is Computational Physiology especially determining human health state from non-invasive ambulatory physiological sensors.
