I'm a modeller, specialized in kinetic modeling of biochemical networks. My focus in the SysMO-LAB consortium is on creating models of Lactococcus lactis glycolysis and couple this to other related lactic acid bacteria like Streptococcus pyogenes and Enterococcus faecalis. Besides kinetic modeling, I'm also interested in combining various modeling techniques (genome-scale modeling, qualitative modeling).
My background is physics engineering & biomedical engineering. I did my PhD in Surrey on the modelling of response of mammalian cells to radiation of different qualities.
I have been working at the University of Aberdeen since November 2007 as a theoreticien research fellow of the KOSMOBAC project. We are investigating the homeostasis of ions in bacteria E. coli. I have been working at a model of the buffering capacity of the cytopplasm, arising from the presence of weak acids and bases. We
