Coverage of our work in SIAM News
The last two issues of SIAM News both have an article that describes some collaborative efforts with different colleagues. Eric Shea-Brown writes about our joint effort to relate the patterns of connections between the neurons in the brain to their joint dynamics, and ultimately function. Dana Mackenzie gives a nice overview of interactions between mathematicians and synthetic biologists. This includes a description of some joint work with Will Ott (UH) and Matt Bennett (Rice). Unfortunately, the second article does not mention the two postdocs who did most of the work: Faiza Hussain (Rice) who did the majority of the experimental work, and Chinmaya Gupta (UH) who did most of the modeling. The press release from UH is here.
