I am a Professor in the Departments of Computational Medicine and Mathematics. I am also an affiliate faculty in the Department of Bioengineering, the Physiology interdepartmental program (IDP), the Bioinformatics IDP, and the Statistical and Biomathematical Consulting Center. As such, I look forward to mentoring quantitatively well-trained PhD students across these departments and IDPs.

I have broad research interests, especially in biophysics, cell biology, physiological modeling, virology, and in more fundamental applied/statistical/computational mathematics. I like to combine advanced physics approaches with statistical/stochastic/optimization techniques to formulate and analyze predictive models that not only help us understand mechanisms, but guide the posing of new questions in physics, biology, biomedicine, and engineering.
