biophysics, evolutionary theory, host-pathogen interactions, microbial ecology
I use physics, mathematical techniques, and computational approaches to build theoretical models of living systems. My interests include the role of memory in populations of cells and complex communities, evolutionary consequences of host-pathogen interactions, and elucidating the principles of ecological robustness, diversity and stability.
