Current Projects

Simulation Experiment Management for Systems Biology (SEMS)
Systems biology is a scientific approach characterised by an iterative cycle of data-driven modelling and model-driven experimentation. The present project is to provide support for this iterative cycle through techniques and tools that improve and ease the working with simulation setups, using standard formats and ensuring result reproducibility.

Research Interest

Combining interfaces and tools

"I am interested in the development of applications to present and test our tools and methods."

Pushing the frontier of knowledge is a hard business, especially when the knowledge, your research is based on, is diffuse and unorganized. The effort our team puts into version control, exchangeability of simulation data and providing a system to search in model repositories enables the community to order this chaos. Unfortunately it is hard to design systems for a huge amount of data without having one. Further it is rarely possible to use a basic software, resulting out of research, immediately and without a proper User Interface.

Aware of this facts, it is pleasant to develop applications helping other team members developing the main systems. Particularly at begin of my academic career, contributing a small part to large projects is an exciting alternation besides studying.
