Research Interests

What are the dynamic regulatory mechanisms, the information processing, and the specific molecular elements that control complex biological processes? We develop new computational systems and methods to automatically reverse-engineer quantitative dynamic models from experimental data, produce testable hypothesis, and find the best next set of novel experiments to test at the bench. Our computational systems biology approach aims to understand the regulatory dynamics controlling multidimensional biological phenomena such as development and regeneration, the formation of cancer and other diseases when this process goes awry, and their applications to systems and synthetic biology. To this end, we also create mathematical and computational models, high-performance in silico experiments and simulators, and novel formalisms, ontologies, and databases to centralize and unambiguously describe biological experiments and their results.
