- Molecular computing, particularly algorithmic self-assembly and chemical reaction networks
- Theoretical Computer Science; particularly Algorithmic Information Theory and Computational Complexity

Formerly (and possibly in the future) I studied methods of measuring information and the extent to which computation on objects is capable of altering their information content. My research in this direction is in an area in which theoretical computer science intersects with fractal geometry and information theory, known as effective fractal dimension, developed by Jack Lutz. I am also interested in another area known as computational depth, which is a different notion of algorithmic information developed by Charles Bennett.
