Cell biology has entered the Big Data era, introducing a huge gap between the amount and complexity of cell imaging data and the ability to process it in a meaningful and informative manner. This gap provides an enormous opportunity for quantitative scientists to develop new methods, with the aim of deciphering complicated dynamic processes in cells through the analysis of microscopic images. His field of research is at the interface of cell biology and computer science, and deals with the understanding of complicated processes in cells through a range of computational methods from the field of data science. A central research question in his lab is how do cells communicate to achieve efficient collective self-organization and dynamics in normal processes and disease?
