My research work and that of my group, the Theoretical Systems Biology group, is centered around reverse-engineering the structure, dynamics and evolutionary history of biological systems. To this end we develop and employ a range of statistical modelling techniques, comparative and evolutionary approaches and text-mining technologies. 

This suite of tools is applied to study signal transduction, gene regulation and physical interaction networks in organisms ranging from Escherichia coli to humans, their role in health and disease, and novel therapeutic approaches.
