Christopher Myers

Adjunct Professor

Complex systems, networks, dynamics, critical phenomena, and pattern formation; theoretical and computational systems biology; infectious disease dynamics and host-pathogen interactions; scientific computing and software design.


My research lies at the intersection of physics, biology, and computational science, focused on problems such as: infectious disease dynamics and host-pathogen interactions; biological information processing; dynamics and cascades on networks; the structure and dynamics of intracellular networks involved in gene regulation, signal transduction, metabolism, development, virulence and immune response; and the design and development of software systems for modeling complex physical and biological phenomena.
