Dr. Perez-Carrasco interests focus on theoretical systems biology to understand how space, time, and precision are related at different scales in biology such as embryo development or synthetic biology.  To this end he is developing a systems biology mathematical framework that reveals insight into cell fate decisions employing  analytical and computational tools that make use of dynamical systems, stochastic processes, and Bayesian inference.
