Research Area: Dynamics of Physiological Control
The focus is on the mathematical modeling of physiological processes at the molecular, cellular and tissue level. Recent work has emphasized:
1. Gene regulation in simple organisms; and
2. Periodic hematological diseases (such as cyclical neutropenia, cyclical thrombocytopenia, and periodic leukemia).
My emphasis is always on biologically realistic mathematical models, careful consideration of laboratory and/or clinical data, and achieving a reasonable concordance between the data and the modelling.
I no longer take trainees (UG research students, graduate students or post-doctoral fellows).
Education: Ph.D. Physiology & Biophysics, University of Washington
