Systems Biology
My scientific interests are at the border between artificial intelligence and biology. To what extent can cells learn from their environment, and use this information to intelligently adapt their internal state? How sophisticated are the information-processing capabilities of single cells and how are these implemented using noisy molecular parts? I explore these questions in microbes, focusing on yeast. Much of this work is inspired by developments in cognitive science.

Berkman Klein Center
At Berkman Klein, I am working on understanding the politics and culture of biomedical science. I am particularly interested in how scientific projects are influenced by fields thought to be external to science, like journalism and economics.
