Research

I'm interested in the dynamics of biological systems (biosystems). Biosystems have hierarchy (e.g., molecules, cells, tissues, organs, individuals, populations, communities, ecosystems…) and each hierarchical level is composed of various components that are continuously changing over time with interacting each other. Thus biological systems are hierarchically-layered high-dimensional and nonlinear dynamic systems, and we are yet to have enough understanding for such systems in any scientific field. Every system has each characteristics but various biological system often show common trends. I want to highlight the common basis for understanding complex biological systems. Therefore, my research includes various fields of science with both experimental and theoretical approaches. It may sound unfocused but I actually focus the basis with keeping my view always naive and flexible.

Specifically...
# Brain dynamics and its application
# Experimental (microbial) ecology and evolution
# Simple theory of biological dynamics
# Application of biological dynamics
# Artificial life by biochemicals
