Mathematical aspects of cell biology and neuroscience


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.

Group Picture 2009Mathematics 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.
