What I do

As director of the Quantitative Biosciences Institute (QBI), I aim to create a framework that fosters open collaboration between scientists locally, domestically, and internationally, where each group brings something unique but highly complementary to the problem. At the onset of the current pandemic, I built on these relationships and created the QBI Coronavirus Research Group (QCRG) where we combine our strengths to aide in finding a treatment for COVID-19. The group’s studies have benefitted from my lab’s work, where we develop experimental and computational tools that can be applied to many biological and biomedical problems. These tools allow for effective connections between discovery research and the clinical world, enabling novel therapies for diseases.
