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.
Physical chemist with expertise in experimental kinetics, molecular biology, and mathematical modeling.
Professor of Biochemistry at the Centre of Biochemistry of Heidelberg University, teaching biochemistry for medical and biology students
Research focus is the trypanothione redox metabolism of African trypanosomes (Trypanosoma brucei).
The work is funded within the Collaborative Research Centre 544 on "Control of Tropical Infectious Diseases" of the German Research Foundation
