A bit about me
I’m interested in the coordination and optimization of cellular scale processes, how objectives - like fitness or entropy production - are influenced by the streams of information between tiers of biological organization, and how all this complexity is imprinted in the genetic code. I enjoy thinking about these layers of biological complexity as they relate to the ecology and biogeochemistry of the oceans. More
Recent works and perspectives
Ongoing research with the Simons Foundation Collaboration on Biogeochemical Modeling of Marine Ecosystems. Watch a narrated slide show of what’s in the works and check out a case-study applying detailed mechanistic models of Prochlorococcus physiology and metabolism across an eddy-dipole.
A mechanistic model of substrate transport
Check out our mechanistic model of substrate limited microbial growth kinetics. A way to derive nutrient transport rates and growth rates from physiological data and genome-scale models. Easier than it sounds!
