My areas of expertise are from the fields of complex systems. They include: (1) Ferromagnetism of Ising systems and ultrathin surfaces. (2) Light tissue interaction, with special focus on laser absorption by the retinal pigment epithelium and melanosomes. (3) Predictions of protein structure (secondary and tertiary) based on amino acid sequence information. Predicting protein sequence based on structure, protein design. Intrinsically disordered proteins. Protein configuration spaces. (4) Chaotic systems, focusing on modeling and characterization. Other problems in biological and/or complex systems are of interest to me, for example cell division and machine learning. I am a contributing member of both the American and the Israeli Physical Societies.
