Research Interests: We search for general principles that unify seemingly very different and often formidably complex biological systems. We enjoy trying to capture these principles in the form of physical theories that are reasonably simple and abstract, and yet generate concrete, experimentally testable predictions.
Research Interests: To study causal relationships between gene regulation and cellular behaviors, by developing computational and experimental methods on network modeling, stem cell engineering, epigenomic and single-cell analyses.
Research Interests: Investigate how cells maintain homeostasis in response to environmental perturbations using biochemical techniques combined with next-generation sequencing and quantitative microscopy.
Research Interests: Defining the intertwined crosstalk between different community members in the microbiome to understand how complex systems are organized and maintained and to predict how these systems develop and react to changes and targeted interventions.
