Gokhale, Chaitanya (Prof. Dr.)

Hello! My name is Chaitanya and I am heading the group on Theoretical Biology at the CCTB

You can learn more about me and my research in the university's online magazine: From Cells to Societies

Research in my group spans levels of organisation - from subcellular entities to societies. I am interested in elucidating the associations and interactions that power the emergent complexity at multiple scales. My focus is on eco-evolutionary processes within and between the valuable but amorphous organisation of hierarchies of organisation. My group members utilise the toolbox of theoretical biology while simultaneously developing it further. With "Insight preceding application" (Max Planck), we then eventually deploy our knowledge into action via translational programmes.

You can find more about my reserach interest on mygroup website and personal webpage.
