Evolution, Developmental Biology, and Neurobiology in the nematode C. elegans.
An academic start-up initiative focused on academic research, statistical analysis, and computational modeling. Projects include DevoWorm and Representational Brains and Phenotypes
Thesis title: Reprogramming to the nervous system: a computational and candidate gene approach.
Research on the phenotypic reprogramming of animal cells (e.g. generation of iPSCs, iNCs, and iSMCs) using computational, bioengineering, and molecular techniques. This includes the fundamental properties, cellular mechanisms, and applications of cellular plasticity and artificially-induced neuronal cells (neurons and muscle).
Assessment of technological innovations in terms of marketability and start-up potential. Areas of expertise: computational biology, nanotechnology, robotics.
Research topic: Augmented Cognition, Neuromechanics, and Adaptive Variation in Virtual Environments.
Virtual environments, human neuromechanics, and computational models to understand human behavior. Application domains include the integration of mechanical devices, interactive computing, haptic interfaces, and physiological function. Application of kinematic, behavioral, and electrophysiological measurements to a host of problems at the intersection of virtual environments and human performance.
Thesis title: Evaluating Intraspecific Variation and Interspecific Diversity: comparing humans, non-human Primates, and fish species.
A phylogenetic approach to intraspecific (within-species) and interspecific (between-species) mitochondrial DNA and morphological variation. Comparative data from non-human Primates and other vertebrates are also utilized. Comparative taxonomic, demographic, and molecular variance research on human and non-human molecular markers.
