I am interested in the physical principles underlying biological phenomena and how biological systems provide new insights into physics. My broader research interests are in the areas of Physics of Living Systems, Quantitative Biology, Cell Biology and Developmental Biology. More specifically, I am interested in studying the role of local cell-autonomous control mechanisms and information processing in spatial and temporal contexts of biological function. These can be global tissue-level tasks such as morphogenesis, collective behaviour and pattern formation, and local tasks such as cellular decision-making, cell fate choice and adaptive cellular response. In my work, I am keen on collaborating closely with experimentalists.
