Kevin Brown is a complex systems scientist. He researches complex biological systems, particularly networks arising in systems biology, systems neuroscience, and cognitive science. He employs methodology from dynamical systems, network theory, Bayesian and nonparametric statistics, computational biology, and statistical signal processing, employing a mix of data-driven and model-driven approaches.

I am interested in complex biological systems: networks of genes and proteins, neurons in the brain, and words in spoken and written language. My theory of Sloppy Models has important implications for systems in ecology, chemistry, neuroscience, physics, and even atmospheric science.
