I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of British Columbia (

My general interest is to combine mathematical, computational and statistical tools to study fundamental processes in biology and neuroscience (for more details, see my publications).

For the past few years, I have mostly focused on studying the regulation and determinants of gene expression and translation. To do so, I have developed mathematical models of translation and analyzed data from Ribosome profiling and Cryo-EM structures, while tackling theoretical and computational problems related to particle processes, evolution, and biophysical and molecular properties of the ribosomes.
