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.
