Computation, Modeling & Signal Processing research topics include: neuroengineering to map and modify neural signaling; quantitative mechanobiology to reveal how physical forces and changes in the mechanics of cells and their environment drives cell signaling and responses; biological dynamics to describe and understand time varying biological systems; and the development of enabling methods such as quantitative image processing, machine learning and signal processing algorithms.
