Research statement

I am a theoretical physicist who is interested in the spatial and temporal organization of biological processes. This organization often emerges from the interplay of many small parts, leading to complex behaviors. I study such problems in cells and tissues using tools from statistical physics, dynamic systems theory, and information theory.
