Namo Buddhaya Dhamma Wheel,
My name is Jonathan Warren, PhD. I'm an epidemiologist in the US, with academic backgrounds in information science and Buddhist studies. I've been a practicing lay Buddhist of various types for about 20 years -- mostly Theravada for the past 15 years or so.
I have a philosophy blog at http://mindstring.net
). Replies/discussion about what I write there are welcome, but I don't often have much free time or energy, so please be patient with me.
