    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Biological systems are thought to be exceedingly 'complex'--comprised of many parts and sets of unintuitive interactions between parts conferring system function. My lab is interested in elucidating principles of structure, function, and adaptability relationships with the ultimate goals of (i) characterizing 'personalized' variation in biological systems with high-fidelity, (ii) creating tools to genetically engineer variation in a rational way, and (iii) engineering natural-like, adaptive systems de novo. We use a blend of theory, computation, and experiment applied to a range of model systems spanning neural networks to electronic health record data to complex ecosystems inhabiting humans in addressing these concepts.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
