Nicholas D. Haynes

Most people call me Nick

Hey there, good to meet you.

I'm a PhD candidate in physics at Duke University and based in Durham, NC. My work generally involves the intersection of machine learning, complex networks and the physics of information. If you're not an expert, my research page has a non-technical overview.

For the 2016 U.S. presidential election cycle, I'm blogging about my perspective on the race at Campaign Stop 2016. You should check it out - we have ~30 grad and undergrad students + political experts from Duke, updated daily.

Previously, I earned a BS in physics and philosophy and an MS in applied math from the University of Dayton. I also spent 4 years working at the US Air Force Research Laboratory doing research on optical materials.

When I'm not doing research, I like to play around with toy projects. Some of the things I've been working on recently are on my side projects page.

And feel free to get in touch!
