I am interested in the coupling of global regulation and metabolism in E. coli. To analyze this I construct and analyze defined mutant strains. These strains are characterized in bioreactor experiments of different types (batch, conti, pulse ...) and measurements on the level of metabolites, mRNA, and protein are applied. For all projects there are cooperation partners that use the data in modeling approaches either from the MPI Magdeburg or from the SUMO consortium.

I'm an engineer at the MPI Magdeburg and I'm working in the field of mathematical modeling, model verification, parameter identification, model analysis and experimental design. I'm involved in two projects, KOsmoBac and PSYSMO.
"Systems Understanding of Microbial Oxygen responses" (SUMO) investigates how Escherichia coli senses oxygen, or the associated changes in oxidation/reduction balance, via the Fnr and ArcA proteins, how these systems interact with other regulatory systems, and how the redox response of an E. coli population is generated from the responses of single cells. There are five sub-projects to determine system properties and behaviour and three sub-projects to employ different and complementary modelling
Systems analysis of process-induced stresses: towards a quantum increase in process performance of Pseudomonas putida as the cell factory of choice for white biotechnology.
The specific goal of this project is to exploit the full biotechnological efficacy of Pseudomonas putida KT2440 by developing new optimization strategies that increase its performance through a systems biology understanding of key metabolic and regulatory parameters that control callular responses to key stresses generated
