Research Interests:

My research involves the simulation of biological systems, specifically cellular electrophysiology. I use the tools of Mathematical Modeling, Numerical Methods for Differential Equations, and High-Performance Computing to address research problems in the area of Cellular Electrophysiology. With the help of numerous collaborators in academia and industry, I also use the techniques of Cell culture, Immunochemistry, and Molecular Biology: PCR, siRNA.
