Overview

I am interested in how the physical world shapes the dynamics in biological systems. I currently focus on the role of the environment on the evolutionary dynamics of populations expanding into new habitats.

My group uses a variety of models, mostly borrowed from physics, simulation techniques and protocols necessary to make quantitative measurements. Our current model system of choice is bacteriophage T7 spreading on a lawn of the bacterium E. coli.
