Our research group works on a variety of problems within the fields of computational systems medicine, computational systems biology, mathematical biology and bioinformatics.

We focus on the design and software development of mathematical algorithms for the modeling, simulation and control of biological networks such as gene regulatory networks, signal transduction networks and functional brain networks. While the mathematical tools we employ are varied, many of the approaches we develop have a flavor of fields such as discrete mathematics (graph theory and combinatorics), algebra and computational algebra.
