Organization Type: University
Research Area: My present work concentrates on cellular ecology, emergent biological phenomena and evolution dynamics, with a focus on cancer evolution dynamics. All of my projects are aimed at using the techniques of physics to achieve a quantitative understanding of fundamental aspects of biological molecules and systems.
Research Description: My present work is divided into at least four areas. All of my projects are aimed at using the techniques of physics to achieve a quantitative understanding of fundamental aspects of biological molecules and systems. (1) Sequence-dependent structure and rigidity of DNA and its influence on DNA-protein interaction. (2) Studies of energy flow in biomolecules. (3) Applications of microlithography to biology. (4) Ultra-rapid mixing.
Thrust Area: N/A Biological Matter
