Biological order relies on tightly controlled nonequilibrium processes. My research focuses on elucidating common patterns in biological order using the principles of thermodynamics as well as how autonomous control is achieved in inherently stochastic biological systems. 

Some projects and research interests:

  • Morphogenesis, tissue dynamics and controlled pattern formation

  • Bioenergetics, dynamics and evolution of biomolecular networks

  • Universal algorithms to control stochastic biological processes at various scales 

  • Phase separation and transport properties in active (biological) mixtures
