Michael E. ColvinProfessor and Associate Dean for Academic Programs
The past century has seen tremendous progress in determining the biochemical and biophysical processes that constitute life. One exciting consequence of this understanding is the possibility of developing mathematical models of biological function that are accurate and even predictive.
More recently, his research interests have expanded to include simulations of biophysical and cellular processes using equations that describe the system as continuous (and sometime stochastic) dynamical systems. These projects include:
These projects offer a wide range of research projects for students interested in the application of mathematics and computers to understand the living world.
