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

•  Mathematical aspects of neurotransmitter release in neural computation
•  Mathematical aspects of coordinated locomotion in crustacean swimming: its neural mechanism and fluid dynamics
