My research deals with questions that involve between complex dynamics in biology. Recent work in cardiac tissue deals with conditions that lead to arrhythmias and risk for arrhythmias. Theoretical work analyzes the way geometric structures influence dynamics. I also study mathematical models of genetic networks formulated as differential equations in which genes are represented as logical elements. Finally, I have been interested in question involving visual perception of simple patterns including dot patterns and rotating spoke patterns. All these systems contain complex networks in space in which basic mathematical properties still need to be elucidated. By providing understanding of normal dynamics, the work may provide insights into methods to control abnormal dynamics.
