Research interests

I’m a computational systems biologist and my research involves analyses of complex biological networks at different levels of detail.  I use dynamic and steady state models to examine systems biology of microbial communities, multi-cellular organisms, and host-pathogen interactions.  I work with microbiologists in assessing the phenotypic capabilities of biofuel producing organisms (such as Rhodopseudomonas palustris) and designing new strains for improved production of desired compounds.

I am also interested in systems pharmacology.   I develop and use physiology-based pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic models to predict the transient outcome of drug metabolism and therapeutic or toxic outcomes.
