Modeling and AI
Current research: 

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.
