a researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in the Biosystems and Biomaterials Division. My research interest is in understanding biology using thermodynamics, information theory, stochastic processes, and network theory. Currently, I am developing computational methods to evaluate the propagation of information through complex biological networks, like the immune system. In the recent past I have worked on the connection between information transfer and fitness for genetic sensors, and how phenotypes depend on the topology of large gene networks. Earlier than that I’ve developed reaction-diffusion modeling of biomaterials and methods for computing material properties of disordered biopolymer networks. Check out more under research.
