Associate Professor of Biophysics

My research program, bridging the fields of biophysics, chemical & systems biology, biomedical engineering, and the young field of bottom-up synthetic biology, emphasizes both methodology development and applications for understanding complex stochastic cellular and developmental processes. The current questions we pursue are how networks are designed and function in cell cycles and somitogenesis, how individual cells communicate to generate collective patterns, and how biochemical, biophysical, and biomechanical signals work together to shape morphogenesis during early embryo development.
