Erik was originally trained as a mathematician with some computer science sprinkled in between. His main interest is to draw tools from different math corners to describe, quantify,  and compare the shape of various 2D and 3D objects. He is especially interested in applying techniques from Topological Data Analysis (TDA) to understand the morphological diversity seen across plants and their various tissues. He is also interested in bringing this comprehensive shape quantification framework to high-throughput plant phenotyping pipelines.
