Current projects

Below are a list of ongoing projects that are at various stages of advancement from exploratory analyses to submission phase. Most of them are done in collaboration with experimentalists. If you are interested in more details on any of them, do not hesitate to contact me.

Pattern formation in the mammalian inner ear

The objective of this project is to try to understand how the organ of Corti in the inner ear robustly develops from an homogeneous layer of cells into a highly organized checkerboard pattern.

Sex-specific phenotypic robustness

This project explores the evolutionary implications of the male phenotypic sensitivity hypothesis and looks for relevant evidence in publicly available data sets.

Estimating mRNA dynamics using 4sU sequencing

In this project, I am (hopefully) improving on current methods to estimate the dynamics of mRNA synthesis, splicing, and degradation using 4sU sequencing.

Resource aware noise control in transcriptional processes

This project investigates whether noise levels depends on resource availability in transcriptional regulation.

Information transfer quantification in adaptive channels

Classical information theory defines channel capacity as the maximal rate of information that can be transmitted through a memoryless channel. However biological channels, such as the GPCR system, are usually adaptive rather than memoryless. The aim of this project to try to define an adequate quantification of information transfer capacity of an adaptive channel and apply it to a biological system.
