The focus of my work lies in the collective behavior of non-equilibrium biophysical systems ranging from ecological networks to pattern-forming protein systems. Regarding protein systems, my research is mostly concerned with the nonlinear dynamics in reaction-diffusion systems as well as active processes during bacterial cell division. In terms of ecological networks, I am especially interested in the feedback mechanisms and interactions between network dynamics and evolutionary driving forces.
