The Big Picture

I take a top-down approach to study stochastic behavior of single microorganisms

I am currently exploring the dynamics of single cell shape, growth, and division under various environmental conditions in the bacterium C. crescentus.I have also studied the connection between neuronal function and organismal behavior in the nematode C. elegans.  I spend a lot of time working to automate the acquisition and analysis of very long movies of very many organisms.
