I am interested in building mathematical models aimed at understanding how protein-mediated physical manipulation of the chromosomal polymer at hundreds-of-nanometers length scale may lead to large scale structural reorganization and topological disentanglement, also interesting are the associated time scales. Such models not only have the potential to make our notion of the inner workings of the cellular machinery more nuanced via interpreting existing observations, but can also predict new experiments.
