Research Interests

I belong to the following research groups:

I got my PhD in Physics from the University of Bergen (Norway) in 2001. I joined the department as an Academic Fellow in Sept. 2005. My current main research interest is information processing in biological cells. In particular, I am interested in how stochastic fluctuations limit the abililty of the cell to change its internal states in response to changing environments. A consequence of noise seems to be that the cell has to use energy in order to be able to react rapidly and accurately to changes. This results in trade-offs between the metabolic expense of a network and its efficiency.
