Dr. Hormoz obtained his undergraduate degree (B.A.Sc. 2006) from the University of Toronto in Engineering Science. He then completed his S.M. (2007) and Ph.D. (2011) in Applied Physics at Harvard University with Michael Brenner. His postdoctoral studies were conducted jointly as a theorist at the Kavli Institute of Theoretical Physics (UCSB) with Boris Shraiman, and as an experimentalist in the lab of Michael Elowitz at Caltech. He joined the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School and the cBio center at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in 2017.
I am an experimental biologist and a theoretical physicist working on problems in dynamics of development and diseases such as cancer. As an experimentalist, I use synthetic biology and high throughput single-molecule imaging to study mammalian cells. As a theorist, I use tools from statistical physics and sometimes counterintuitive mathematics to interpret the data generated by my experiments. Ultimately, I am looking for general theoretical principles for understanding collective dynamics in populations of proliferating cells.
