Michael Samoilov is a Research Staff Member at the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3) at UC Berkeley. Dr. Samoilov earned his Bachelor’s degree with Honor in Physics and Mathematics from Caltech (1991). He then went on to do graduate work at Stanford University, beginning with high-energy physics and astrophysics, for which he was awarded an M.S. in Physics (1994), and continuing at the biophysics program where he received a Ph.D. in Biophysics (1997). After spending several years developing stochastic trading strategies for leading finance companies and running a Webby Award-winning multimedia start-up, Michael was drawn back to science by the emergence of novel biological systems engineering and analysis paradigms driven by the advances in single-molecule, single-cell and bulk high-throughput experimental methods. His most recent work includes investigating the role of discrete and stochastic dynamics in biological circuits, developing biochemically - and biophysically-driven methods for structural identification and functional analysis of biological networks, as well as studying information and signal processing characteristics of biomolecular reaction systems.
