About us

Our research centers on the theory of complex systems and biophysics, applied to a broad spectrum of problems, mainly in the context of the physics of living systems. Our research is often done in collaboration with experimental groups. Key themes of our lab include mathematical modeling of cell growth and mechanics, both at the single-cell level and the population level, stochastic processes, disordered systems, and coarse-grained modeling of complex processes.

Jiseon's work to appear in PRL

January 9, 2019
Congratulations to Jiseon for having her first paper accepted, on the effects of asymmetric protein segregation on the population growth! The work which started as her summer research project as an undergraduate and continued together with Jie will soon be published in Physical Review Letters. See: https://arxiv.org/abs/1804.09195
