Areas of Interest

I am a biophysicist whose former research area was the theoretical description and modeling of complex macromolecular systems. Recently, I became very interested in experimental cell biology and microscopy and now my work is mostly concentrated on the development of a complex (theoretical and experimental) model of the phenomenon of oscillating cells. This model will tightly integrate quantitative experimental measurements in live cells with computational analyses and provide a system-level understanding of how cytoskeleton, plasma membrane, and signaling networks are dynamically and spatially coordinated across the whole cell.
