I research the signaling pathways and transcription factors in a cell that are organized into circuits. They allow cells to process information and make decisions. For me, the work arises in understanding both how these circuits are built from their components, and how they function and malfunction. To address these questions, he is working to reverse engineer the circuitry that controls cell growth in budding yeast using a combination of genomic, proteomic and computational methods.
