I'm interested in the application and development of methods of systems theory in biology (systems biology). In particulary I work on the following topics:
Thermodynamic constraints on biochemical network; Model reduction; Modeling and Analysis of metabolic regulation.
I have a permanent position at the department of microbiology at the TU-München. As a microbiologist I am interested in the regulation of central metabolism in prokaryotic organisms with different types of energy metabolism such as Clostridia, Bacilli and acetic acid bacteria. Furthermore I worked as a software developer for several years in a bioinformatics company and I am very interested in bioinformatics and handling of large amounts of data.
Institutions: Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
I am working at the boundary of wet-labs and mathematical modeling, trying to understand the regulation of the eukaryotic cell cycle. I started working with yeast in a group of Systems Biology (Prof. Edda Klipp, Humboldt University, Berlin). Before that I studied biology, engineering and did research on the nuclear pore complex.
I'm currently a Postdoc at the Institute of Technical Biochemistry in Stuttgart University. My project involves the experimental validation of the Indirect Enzymatic Dehydration Via Phosphorylation and Dephosphorylation of Isobutanol for Isobutene production.
