Research Summary

My primary research interest is to study dynamical physiological processes using mathematical models and analysis. I work mostly on processes at the cellular or organismal level. Some of the topics included in my recent work are regulation and construction of flagellar motors, decision making and switch-like behavior in gene regulatory networks, gel formation and dynamics of the gastric mucus layer, and the role of junctional regions in electrical coupling of cardiac cells.
