My general research interests lies in statistical physics and biophysics. Topics include:
1) Statistical characterization of an energy or attractor landscape.
2) Multi-dimensional Brownian dynamics simulations in exotic energy landscape.
3) Developing mathematical framework for nonequilibrium phenomena.
4) Biomechanics of membrane biogenesis.
