Marco Arieli Herrera-Valdez


I am a mathematician and a scientist. My research centers around the study of nonlinear phenomena involving different levels of (biological) organization. Such phenomena depend on processes occurring in different temporal and spatial scales. Currently of most interest to me, is the activity of neural circuits, as determined by functional heterogeneity and the resulting regulation of gene expression (e.g. channels) in response to internal an external stimuli. Understanding this relationship is key to establish mechanistic explanations about phenomena occurring at high levels of organization such as behavior, learning and memory, immunological processes, etc. My background is a mixture of formal training in mathematics and life sciences, which explains my research interests and my approaches to tackle research problems. In my research I combine expertise in mathematics, biophysics, and physiology. My work involves theoretical and experimental approaches. I also teach at undergraduate and graduate levels and train students to do research. I also work on non-academic fronts, consulting on projects in computational science, operations research, and epidemiology.
