Research Interests: I am currently the director of the EnBiSys Research Laboratory. The EnBiSys Lab is a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary research laboratory, focused on the development of targeted computational and analytical solutions for modeling and controlling biological systems. The solutions we develop are used to build and strengthen the transition from large-scale high-throughput –omics data to highly connected kinetic models in the post-genomic era; models that can be used to attain the depth, understanding, and comprehension needed to manipulate and control biological systems for a defined purpose.

Specific interests in this field include:

– Nonlinear Systems Analysis
– System Identification
– Uncertainty Analysis
– Optimal Experimental Design
– Biological Signal and Data Processing
