Major Fields of Interest

  • Systems and quantitative biology
  • Computational cell biology
  • Nonequilibrium statistical physics of complex systems

Current Research

Our research interest is to understand the dynamics of biological systems at various time and length scales through theoretical analysis and modeling.  At the molecular level, my current research focuses on understanding the mechano-chemistry of protein motors, and allosteric regulation mechanisms.  At the systems level, we are interested in understanding the emerging properties of protein and genetic networks.
