Data Science + Data Aggregation = Methodology

Geographic Information Systems + Agent-based Modeling = Optimization
This is an area of recent interest. It began when I decided to model a ride sharing service (Uber or Lyft) in the Washington, DC area, and began to like the process of modeling GIS systems. There’s some interesting work being done in this area, mainly in the autonomous vehicle area, so I plan to continue my work in this area.

Firms as Biological Creatures + Statistical Models = Complex Adaptive Systems
I’m also interested in economic networks, big data, and information theory.
