Areas of Interest

Dr. Burns' research interests center around DNA structure and dynamics and gene regulation, especially the effects of supercoiling in the organization of chromatin and its nuclear matrix attachments, analysis of Hi-C data via dynamical models, relations to cell states. Other interests include dynamics of cell membranes and structure. Dr. Burns' continuing mathematical interests include complex analytic geometry and its relationship to symplectic geometry.
