    Research Overview

    Mathematics: Mathematics of Synchronization. Biology: The work in our lab is focused on the dynamics of genome organization in human cells, with emphasis on gaining a deeper understanding of how the cell cycle guides cell fate determination. The long-term goal is to develop strategies for direct reprogramming of normal and abnormal cells. Another area of research is Data-guided Learning and Control of Higher Order Structures.
