I am a proficient applied mathematician and an avid learner who thrives on explicating and solving hard problems. My current focus is biopharmaceutical R&D, including pharmacology, biochemical reaction networks and systems biology. I succeed thanks to the synergy of two pillars. One is to gain comprehensive understanding of problems through active collaboration across organizational structures and scientific disciplines and cultures. The other is to design and deliver thorough solutions grounded on mathematical rigor, methodical custody of knowledge, and well-organized computing. I address real-life problems by applying available mathematics and by developing novel mathematics needed to support such applications or emerging from them.
