Research Interests and Teaching


Mathematical aspects of cell biology and neuroscience

  • Normal and pathological calcium signaling pathways in the heart

  • Modeling gene regulatory networks using chemical reaction network theory

  • Computational neuroscience of thalamus and basal ganglia
  • Application of product graphs to the analysis of superposed Markov chain models of signaling complexes

While my research is mathematical and computational in nature, I am a life scientist—a biologist who is applying mathematical and computational approaches to problems in cellular physiology.

Mathematics is important for the life scientist because math is the language of all theoretical science, the biological as well as the physical.  

My educational activities are designed to encourage students and colleagues to think quantitatively about biological problems.
