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.

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).

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.
