I am a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Julio Banga. My research is focused on computational systems biology with particular attention to the mathematical modelling of biosystems and bioprocesses. Some of the topics we address are:
- Parameter estimation
- Model identifiability
- Global sensitivity analysis
- Optimal experimental design
- Dynamic optimization
- Robust control of diffusion-reaction systems
Institutions: Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research Braunscheig
I am an engineer with a PhD degree in Chemical Engineering and had been working on dynamic modeling of mammalian cell culture fermentation in London for three years before moving into simulation of microbial systems. In this PSYSMO project I am mainly involved in modeling of PHAs synthesis. I am also a PAL since May 2009 to coordinate data management and general communication among all 17 partners.
Since August 2008 I am professor in Systems Biology at the VU University Amsterdam. My Systems Bioinformatics group focusses on systems biology with a special focus on integrative bioinformatics. It aims at forming bridges between the classical bottom-up approaches in systems biology and the more data-driven approaches in classical bioinformatics. We combine experimental, modeling and theoretical approaches to study cellular physiology, with an emphasis on metabolic networks.
