Research Interests

  • Interested in all aspects of "systems biology", including especially cell signaling and development. Most of my work concerns dynamical system behavior, including control and signal-processing aspects. Examples include my work on oscillations in cell-cycle and circadian models, multi-stability of MAPK cascades, and models of gene networks. However, my current research also includes aspects from computational biology such as TF binding site recognition and analysis of interaction networks.
