Projects and Research Interests

Broadly interested in applying the methods and tools of theoretical biophysics, statistical mechanics and nonlinear dynamics to biological phenomena involving (among others): biomechanics and biochemistry; cell, tissue and population growth; cell migration; and population dynamics. The projects that I work on include:

  • Single and collective cell migration in soft and rigid environments
  • Computer vision and machine learning for cell detection
  • Mass conserving reaction-diffusion systems in deforming geometries
  • Mechanochemical interactions on the microscale
  • Angiogenesis
