My group focuses on the foundations of modular design in biomolecular circuits through a combined theoretical approach (based on control theory) and experimental approach (based on simple gene and signaling circuits fabricated in E. coli). In particular, we are investigating impedance-like effects, called retroactivity, the design of insulation devices to buffer systems from retroactivity, fundamental limitations in signal transmission, energetic transactions among cellular components, and loading problems on the cellular chassis.
