I’m Swarnavo,

a researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in the Biosystems and Biomaterials Division. My research interest is in understanding biology using information theory, network theory, stochastic processes, and thermodynamics. 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 networksCheck out more under research.
