Our Research in SYSTEMS BIOLOGY

rev 27-Oct-2010

We are very interested in applying a systems approach (i.e. model-based concepts and related computational tools) to problems from the biological domain. In particular, we are doing research in computational systems biology, targetting the following topics:

  • Parameter estimation (inverse problems, model calibration) in biochemical pathways
  • Optimal experimental design (optimal dynamic experiments) for Systems Biology
  • Dynamic optimization (optimal control) of biosystems and bioprocesses
  • Nonlinear analysis of biochemical reaction networks
  • Robust control of diffusion-reaction systems, with applications in biosystems

We are also developing software toolboxes to solve problems from these classes above. If you want more information e-mail me
