Assistant Professor of Biomedical and Electrical Engineering
Prof. Andras Gyorgy and his Network Dynamics and Synthetic Biology Group (NetBio) focus on the behavior of dynamic networks with particular emphasis on synthetic biology applications. Blending theory with experiments they look at rational forward-engineering of synthetic biology systems; characterization of circuit-circuit and host-circuit interactions both in vivo and in vitro; and the design and analysis of multi-scale systems prevalent in biology.
Prior to joining NYUAD as an assistant professor in 2017, he was a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley working with Murat Arcak and Adam Arkin. He conducted research on biological control and pattern formation. During his graduate studies at MIT, he focused on modularity in cellular systems blending theory with experiments in collaboration with Domitilla Del Vecchio, James J. Collins and Ron Weiss.
