Edward J. Banigan

I am a postdoctoral fellow in Physics & Astronomy working with Professor John Marko at Northwestern University.  I am also affiliated with the Center for Computation and Theory of Soft Materials

I am a theoretical and computational biological physicist, and I build theoretical and simulation models to understand 1) how cells maintain their internal organization and 2) how cells respond to forces.  Presently, I am particularly interested in the biophysical principles at work within the cell nucleus, which houses the ~1 meter length of DNA that comprises the human genome and encodes cellular activity.
