    Research Interests


    Come visit me at my working group web page to get more than a bullet point list and information on the interdisciplinary projects grown from method development.


    Discrete and hybrid modeling of biological regulatory networks




    regulatory
              network
    • logical modeling
    capturing essential structural and dynamical features
    of a given system based on qualitative data


    • dealing with data uncetainty
    using constraint-based modeling and
    combinations of formalisms to evaluate and exploit data


    • discrete iteration
    analyzing complex behavior of regulatory networks
    using finite dynamical systems


    • complex networks
    modularization and classification of regulatory networks
    based on structural and dynamical properties


    • hybrid modeling approaches
    discrete/continuous methods, stochastic aspects




    Dynamics of complex and uniformly quasiregular mappings  

    My first love in mathematics: beautiful theorems, beautiful proofs, beautiful pictures (take a look)



    Cooperations

    Here you find some of the people I have the pleasure of working with outside of my group at FU.


    Teaching

    Courses in mathematics and bioinformatics at FU Berlin (for a list of courses offered by members of the group Discrete Biomathematics go here)

    Interested in writing a thesis in discrete biomathematics? Just come talk to me.
