Research

Systems Biology of Photosynthesis

With the global food and energy crises, systems biology and mathematical modeling will play a major role to understand the complex process of photosynthesis and how the process can be engineered with the aim to increase photosynthetic efficiency.

Mathematical Modeling of Collective Decision-making in Social Insects

I study how simple interactions between components (e.g., bees) at the individual level give rise to complex macroscopic behaviors of the system (e.g., collective decision-making).
