I am a John and Rebecca Moores Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Houston with adjunct appointments in Biology and Biochemistry at UH, and BioSciences at Rice. I am a member of the Mathematical Biology group, and help lead the Gulf Coast Consortium for Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience.

I received my Phd in 1999 under the supervision of C. Eugene Wayne, in applied dynamical systems. Over the last 20 or so years I have worked in different areas of mathematical biology, with a focus on understanding the structure of neuronal activity, and modeling single celled organisms from the level of signaling pathways to large microbial populations. I also contribute to the program Engines of Our Ingenuity which is broadcast by over 50 NPR stations nationwide. You can find some of my episodes here.
