Research Overview

I am interested in the understanding of fundamental biological processes using theoretical approaches based on nonlinear dynamics and statistical physics and combining them with experimental data. In particular, I am interested in the process of translation or synthesis of proteins, the coupling between transcription and translation, how ribosomes, the molecular machines that manufacture proteins, are synthesised, and its relationship to the cell cycle. I am furthermore interested in the effect of combinatorial stresses in yeast, as well as the effects of different types of stress on the cell cycle.
