Systems Immunology
We seek a systems level understanding of immune responses in metazoans using a combination of mechanistic and data driven in silico modeling with experiments.

Mechanistic Data Driven Models
Can we decipher mechanisms from data driven models of cell signaling?

Stochastic Processes in Cell Signaling Networks
We aim to uncover basic principles that underlie stochastic noise fluctuations in cell signaling by analyzing minimal models.
