My research is intended to contribute to the elucidation of the physiological and molecular processes involved in the biofilm formation of acidophilic leaching bacteria with emphasis in their cell-cell communication mechanisms.
In SysMetEx, our role is to understand biofilm formation at a microscopical and OMICS levels, in order to optimize it.
Institutions: VU University Amsterdam
I am a beginning PhD student at the VU in Amsterdam and study the heterogeneity of yeast cells at near zero growth conditions. I have a versatile background in Biophysics and Systems Biology.

Institutions: Åbo Akademi University
Roles: Project Coordinator
Expertise: Signalling networks, dynamics of biological networks., parameter estimation, Databases, Data analysis, Systems Biology, Model selection, Identifiability, Cellular Senescence, Cell Cycle, Dynamic Systems, Image processing, Image analysis
My group investigates dynamic regulation and control mechanisms of cellular signal transduction networks by a combination of theoretical, experimental and computational methods. We seek to make sense of our biological data with the help of mathematical models, which ideally enable us to make valid predictions for new experiments, thereby generating novel biological insights.

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 am a Postdoc at Keith Matthews lab in the Institute of Immunology and Infection Research, Edinburgh University. As part of the SilicoTryp project we are in charge of performing Targeted disruption and Overexpression of critical enzymes of Trypanosoma brucei redox metabolism enzymes and developmental perturbations to provide part of the necessary data for the construction of the model. Also generate consistent samples, so that data can be integrated and quantification results are guarateed to

Tools: Chromatography, Fluorescence and confocal microscopy, Protein chemical methods (protein overproduction, quantitative western blot analysis, Dynamic modelling, 2-D Gel Electrphoresis, Immunofluorescence, Cell culture, Western blot analyses, interaction analysis techniques especially SPR measurements
Kosmobac, WP3, looking at diffusion of macromolecules in vivo (in E.coli cells) and cell responses to osmotic shock using confocal (fluorescence) microscopy especially pulsed - FRAP
I am a PhD student working the group of Zoya Ignatova. Cellular and extracellular changes like crowding and osmotic stress conditions play a major role in protein aggregation. A change in the cytoplasmic composition is the result of an interplay between high osmotic pressures outside the cell volume and the cellular response to it in terms of uptake of K+ and secondary organic osmolytes. My research focuses on elucidating the role of natural osmolytes (known also as chemical chaperones or compatible
