Current Research (2020+)

Our research focuses primarily on the use of microarrays and nanotechnology to further our physical understanding of biological processes, such as the dynamics of cells when subjected to stress. We are interested in cancer and bacterial evolution, and we apply theoretical models to interpret observed dynamics. We ultimately want to understand, and possibly guide, the evolution of microrganisms by culturing them inside custom-made micro-environments.
