Research Interests

I am a fifth year PhD student in the Bioinformatics and Systems Biology program. I primarily study systems theory and develop modeling methods and computational approaches to study intracellular metabolite concentrations with applications in transfusion medicine. My research attempts to answer three fundamental questions:

  • What physiological states are possible?
  • How do these states behave?
  • Why do these behaviors manifest themselves?

Using modeling approaches that span different timescales, we can provide the framework for identifying, computing, and understanding systems-level properties.
