Scientific interests
In general biological systems are composed of a huge number of interacting constituents. This leads to the emergence of collective phenomena which often can not be predicted from the study of their single components alone. Using tools from Statistical Physics and the theory of Complex Systems we are trying to shed light on basic mechanisms behind such diverse phenomena as self-tolerance of the adaptive immune system or on how neural networks may be driven towards a critical state in order to optimize their computational capabilities.
