Expertise: dynamics and control of biological networks, parameter estimation, Mathematical modelling of biosystems and bioprocesses, Optimal experimental design, Systems Biology, sensitivity analysis, Dynamic optimization.
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

My research activities has been to use mathematical models and Computational Biology to answer biological questions, intertwining in silico and experimental methods at all stages. I have a strong interest in exploring the interfaces between Fundamental Biology and bona fide Engineering, specifically in the realm of environmental and industrial problems. The research goals of my group are to contribute to the elucidation of mechanisms underlying basic cellular processes, evolution and ecological

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 - 2011 to coordinate data management and general communication among all 17 partners.
