I am a post-doctoral research associate working in Sheffield in the SUMO consortium. My research focuses on transcriptional regulation in E. coli, with particular emaphasis on the transcriptomic analysis of steady-state chemostat cultures using both microarray and qRT-PCR approaches.
Previous experience, especially that gained during my PhD, involved work on Salmonella physiology and lag phase growth, focusing particularly on gene-expression and transcriptional regulation. Other techniques used

Since August 2008 I am professor in Systems Biology at the VU University Amsterdam. My Systems Bioinformatics group focusses on systems biology with a special focus on integrative bioinformatics. It aims at forming bridges between the classical bottom-up approaches in systems biology and the more data-driven approaches in classical bioinformatics. We combine experimental, modeling and theoretical approaches to study cellular physiology, with an emphasis on metabolic networks.
