Abstract

My current research lies at the intersection of two disciplines: biology and mathematics. Recent advances in the biological sciences has necessitated the development of quantitative approaches to help interpret and analyze the wealth of experimental data. My focus is on developing and using mathematical methods to understand the role of transcription regulation in various physiological processes. At the same time, I strive to ensure that the models I develop are based on experimental reality. Currently, I am focusing on two main areas: (i) elongation dynamics of transcription (ii) transcription regulation of circadian oscillators. I employ quantitative methods in order to make predictions that can be experimentally verified. My career goal is to make lasting contributions on our understanding of biological processes through the use of mathematics.
