I work on evolutionary and systems biology and carry out computational modeling of complex biological systems ranging from genome evolution and biomolecular networks to ecosystem dynamics. I am a statistical physicist by training so that in my research I often use physics-based modeling techniques. I particularly love simple-yet-rich "bottom down" models.
