Pranay Goel received his B. Tech. in Engineering Physics from IIT Bombay, and MS and PhD in Physics from the University of Pittsburgh in 2003. He went on to two postodoctoral positions, the first at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute, The Ohio State University, and another at the Laboratory of Biological Modeling, The U.S. National Institutes of Health. He has been with IISER Pune since 2009, where he contributes to the Mathematics and Biology programmes of the Institute. He is interested primarily in dynamical systems modeling of biological systems. In particular, a significant preoccupation of the Goel lab is studying theoretical issues centered on type 2 diabetes melitus.
