Emergence of behaviour in biological organisms

My research centers around understanding the generation of behaviour in living systems. Since this is a multifaceted problem I investigate different aspects in parallel:

  • Theory of learning and decision-making in complex environments (with Vijay Balasubramanian)
  • Development of analysis methods to reveal low-dimensional structures in data of large biological networks (wtih Ilya Nemenman)
  • Biomechanical generation of behaviour in simple organisms (with Mirna Kramar, Michael Wilczek and Karen Alim)

Gravity, String Theory and Automorphic Functions

Prior to entering research in Biophysics at the end of 2016, I was working in the field of theoretical High Energy Physics. More precisely, I was working on research problems related to Gravity, String Theory and the mathematical theory of Automorphic Functions and I have extensively published on these topics (see my publications). I have also co-authored a book on the topic of “Eisenstein Series and Automorphic Representations’’, providing a survey of this vast subject with a focus on applications in String Theory. The book has been published by Cambridge University Press in July 2018.
