Research Area

Applied Mathematics, Biophysics and Computational Biology.
I use mathematics, physics and computing to study biology at molecular, cellular and systems levels.  This research benefits greatly from experimental collaborations.  I am also interested in various aspects of applied mathematics itself.

Current Research Topics

•  Molecular Basis of Neurotransmitter Release and its Functional Significance in Neural Computation
•  Neural Mechanism of Robust Locomotion in Nerve-Muscle-Body-Environment Interactions
