I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Control Theory and Systems Biology group at ETH-Zurich. I completed my PhD at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), and my Bachelor's at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN.
My research interests are in the areas of control, dynamical systems, and computation with applications in biology. Below lists some of the projects in which I am involved:
- Sensitivity analysis for stochastic networks: developing new methods to more efficiently estimate parameter sensitivities in discrete, stochastic models of biochemical reaction networks.
- Dynamic modeling of the glial inflammation response: developing mathematical models to capture the dynamics of intracellular signaling pathways in glial cells that can be used to study the system and to make predictions.
- Stochastic simulation with Polynomial Chaos approximations: using a finite series of orthogonal polynomials to approximate a stochastic random variable, which can be used to simulate a stochastic system subject to uncertain parameters with significantly less computational expense.
