My current research focuses on developing quantitative models for understanding the role of stochasticity in biological processes. In particular, I am interested in investigating the role of stochasticity in dynamics of cancer initiation, antibiotic-induced bacterial clearance, T cell activation, and cell-size control in bacteria. I perform my research projects by combining analytical solutions, computer simulations, machine learning methods and statistical hypothesis testing. An indispensable part of my work is to test my theoretical predictions with the available experimental data.
