Research interests

Theoretical biophysics, Mathematical Biology, Complex systems, Computational physics

Keywords include:

  • Diversity and resource limitation/competition in biological systems

  • Minority molecules and their relevance to biological functions

  • Chases and escapes, crowds and collective motions

  • Cellular information processing and their implementations by chemical reactions

  • Instabilities of chemical reactions

  • Transport phenomena in non-equilibrium states

To keep in mind:

  • Explore every possible direction in looking at a given problem, never to be satisfied with 'standard answers', and always to continually question and probe the 'obvious'. It is this intellectual process that leads to real understanding and, occasionally, truly new physical insights.

  • Life is simple, it's just not easy.
