Update: After almost 8 great years at the Institute for Systems Biology, in September 2018 I moved on to a new job as Program Manager at Lumen Bioscience, Inc.
My research focuses on the development of mathematical models for the analysis of biological networks. These range from fully parametrized, kinetic models of pathways to genome-scale models of either kinetic or purely stoichiometric nature. The analysis and control of metabolic flux is also among my main interests. The techniques I use for the modelling of these systems vary from kinetic and ODE-based modelling, to stroichiometric and optimization-based approaches (Flux Balance Analysis being a prime example). At the same time, I develop novel and hybrid approaches for the characterization of metabolic behavior.
At the ISB, I work in the Hood-Price lab, which has years of expertise in genome-scale metabolic modeling and the integration of regulatory information, metabolic networks and expression profiles to accurately model molecular processes in living organisms. The focal points of our research are disease network analysis, molecular signatures of diseases, metabolomics and neurodegenerative diseases.
Since January 2016, I have taken on the duties of Project Manager for the Hood-Price lab. In this role, I manage our federal and foundation funded research projects, making sure of delivering project timelines on schedule and within budget and scope. I am a strong advocate of collaborative work, and always emphasize a dialogue-based approach, in order to ensure well-established goals exist and that project contributors are all on the same page. I have conducted these duties at scales from in-group projects to international collaborations, and have been involved in projects from the proposal and grant-writing phase to late-stage project maintenance activities.
