Research statement

I am interested in the spatial and temporal organization of cellular processes. In general, I examine the organization of cells using tools from dynamical systems theory and statistical physics. I try to understand how complexity in both space and time arises from the interaction of tiny molecules. In doing so, I keep a close connection to the biological science.
