I've become a SysMO DB PAL for MOSES project in 2007 being a post-doc in lab of Prof. Matthias Reuss at University of Stuttgart. In the MOSES project, our major efforts were in the experimental data acquisition for dynamic model of primary carbon and anaerobic energy metabolism in yeast. The model implements prediction of perturbations of two types: glucose pulse and temperature jump. We implement “stimulus-response” methodology for the unraveling the dynamic structure of the network and to

Roles: Project Coordinator
Expertise: Image processing, Image analysis, Dynamic Systems, parameter estimation, Systems Biology, Cellular Senescence, Signalling networks, Databases, Model selection, Cell Cycle, dynamics of biological networks., Data analysis, Identifiability
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.
Institutions: Imperial College London
I am a PhD student in the Theoretical Systems Biology group, based at Imperial College London.
The aim of my PhD is to understand how noise can be the driving force of decision-making processes (differentiation, self-renewal, apoptosis or tumorgenesis), and what are our chances to control them. So far I have been working on method development for stochastic models, a moment closure framework and a stochastic reachability method, to look into cell-to-cell-variability.
Institutions: Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research Braunscheig
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.
