Research Professor

**Area(s) of Expertise:**

- Development of an inference algorithm, IADGRIN, to infer the structure

and logic of noisy Boolean networks - Foundational work on the linkages among work, constraint, information, in

the propagating organization occurring in cells in the biosphere - Initial investigations on the relation between maximizing mutual information

in Boolean networks and the dynamical criticality of such networks - Development of early plans on extending IADGRIN to chemical master equation

(Gillespie) network models of genetic regulatory networks - Construction and implementation of Gillespie networks and study of bi-stable

toggle switches and the three gene "represselator" - Formulation of a general ensemble approach to use Gillespie nets to model

genetic regulatory nets and construction of initial models
