Research Interests

Broadly speaking, I am using methods I learned over the years to address biological questions using a combination of both experiments and theory. I thereby try to employ concepts from and analogies to physics where applicable.

In particular, I focus on understanding how environmental constraints influence the dynamics of a population and its evolution. My team and I will use a combination of experiments, mainly with bacteriophage T7, simulations, and theory to address this question. We will use a variety of methods and develop new assays necessary to make quantitative measurements. Our goal is to connect the results of these measurements to theoretical descriptions we will develop in parallel.
