About this site

Purpose

This website is designed to present my research and teaching activities, project to students, and a blog with my small comments on different subjects. In the future I may also create pages to direct to open code I created for my research.

Original Design

This site is a fork of the Bedford lab code that is freely available on GitHub. Thank you very much for such great design. I have adapted the original design for my needs.

If you want, please write me and I will send you the source code for this site.
