My interdisciplinary research group draws on diverse scientific cultures to develop a creative, rigorous and quantitative approach to the fundamental question of how growth drives cell division. Our diverse backgrounds include mathematics, physics, engineering, biochemistry, genetics, and cell, molecular, and systems biology. This reflects my interdisciplinary training (BS Mathematics; BS Physics - MIT 1999; PhD Applied Mathematics - Cambridge 2004; Postdoctoral training Genetics, Cell, and Systems Biology - Rockefeller)
