Personal profile

Research Interests

Our group studies how complex cell and tissue behaviors are elicited within the context of the organism. We work as experimentalists, teaming up with theorists in applied mathematics, physics, and engineering, to apply systematic and quantitative approaches to biological problems. Gene regulation is of particular interest, and we have a long-standing interest in why non-coding RNAs regulate gene expression.
