Brief bio: I’m a Postdoc in the group of Systems Biology and Mathematical Modeling Group led by Prof. Dr. Zoran Nikoloski, in Potsdam, Germany. I trained as a software engineer with a PhD focused on multivariate time series analysis from University of Potsdam, Germany. The focus of my research is on studying the dynamics and functions of biological systems by inference of cellular networks, specifically gene regulatory networks and protein-protein interactions. My research includes integrative analysis of multivariate time series data from different cellular levels and inference of the underlying networks of causal interactions between the molecular and observable phenotypes. Recent work includes integration of metabolomics data and physiological traits to associate physiological and biochemical responses with primary metabolism.
