This project will be devoted to an exploration of modern methods in machine learning, a field at the interface of computer science and statistics. Specifically, we are interested in applying these methods to biological data sets that our group has already produced and studied. An example of such a project would be methods for learning time-varying networks from data, and applying them to a time course of microarray gene expression data from cells in response to drug doses. This project will be (...)

Nanomaterials and nanotechnologies are now widespread in all branches of engineering and science, from health care and cosmetics to solar batteries and fuel cells to drug delivery and biotechnology. Nanomaterials are composed of building blocks dimension of which varies from 1 to 100 nm. In order to understand the specifics of structural, transport, and thermodynamic properties at such small scales, we apply the computation methods of molecular and dissipative particle dynamics (MD and DPD) and (...)

This project supports the NASA spherical diffusion flame experiments in microgravity that are being conducted on the International Space Station this year. The basic flame configuration adopted for the investigations is the spherically-symmetric diffusion flame generated by issuing a fuel mixture into a quiescent oxidizing environment. Upon ignition, the flame is initially located close to the burner surface, subsequently moving outward to reach the steady-state location. To assess the experimental (...)

If the intestinal epithelium were unraveled it would be a one-cell-thick layer with enough surface area to cover a tennis court. This thin layer selectively absorbs nutrients while repelling toxins and pathogens. Because it’s a dirty job, the entire epithelium is shed and replenished continuously (much like our skin) with the whole tissue replaced every few days. High exposure to noxious substances coupled with high rates of proliferation make this epithelial layer susceptible to both cancer and (...)

Engineering microorganisms is a robust method for production of a wide range of molecules with high industrial values. In this project, we will explore the opportunity of utilizing mixtures of different microorganisms, or microbial consortia, to biosynthesize the product of our interest. This novel approach will be applied towards biosynthesis of a select of compounds. Genetic engineering and microbial cultivation are two major components of this research. Step-wise development of the microbial (...)
