Research interests: My group's research interests are in feedback control theory and its application to synthetic biology.
The goal of our research is to establish engineering-oriented mathematical and experimental platforms that synergistically work together to enhance design process of large-scale biomolecular systems, or biocircuits, that perform complex dynamical tasks in microbes.
We are developing model identification, analysis and biocircuit design tools using mathematical techniques in feedback control and optimization. We are also building experimental platforms such as microfluidic devices that supplement mathematical models with theoretically meaningful data. More details can be found in Research.
Please feel free to contact, if you are interested in working with me.
