Personal profile

Personal information

I am an enthusiastic and skilled systems biologist who can efficiently collaborate and communicate with researchers in various discipline”

In my research, I combine wetlab experiments with computational modelling to advance quantitative understanding of biological processes in healthy and disease cells. I have mainly applied this in metabolism and the gene expression cascade

Specialties: Metabolism, 'pathogens' in the context of the host environment (e.g. trypanosomes in the bloodstream, cancer cells amidst healthy cells), mathematical modeling, blood cells, tumerogenesis, mouse models


Current projects

  • ErasysApp IMOMESIC:  This project aims to obtain systems understanding on how the integration of metabolism and signalling is altered in liver cancer cells compared to the healthy liver.
  • Together with bachelor and master students, I have several computational and experimental projects on energy metabolism in parasites
