Research Interests

Some specific interests include the following:

  1. Probabilistic modeling of biological processes; see, e.g., my work with collaborators on DNA molecular motors.
  2. Homogenization approaches to tissue-level transport phenomena and chemotactic processes.
  3. Pharmacokinetic modeling for Tau-based imaging of neurofibrillary lesions.
  4. Computational modeling and analysis of gene regulatory networks and mitochondrial networks
  5. Modeling of oxygen transport in arterial networks and reconstructive tissue flaps.
