Currently, I'm an AXA Research Fund postdoctoral fellow. I'm based at the Centre for Biological Systems Analysis (ZBSA) and tangentially at the Department of Mathematical Stochastics, both at the University of Freiburg, Germany. I work with Prof. Peter Pfaffelhuber. I was visiting the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, UK, from January until June 2016.
Research interests:
The interfaces of mathematical (esp. probabilistic) modelling, stochastic processes, chemical reaction kinetics, systems biology, control theory, operations research. I seek novel possibilities how these can be applied to develop quantitative methods for research in the life sciences. I'm also interested in making a positive societal impact with my research, and I'm open to being contacted with interesting project ideas for consultation.
Previous appointments:Education:
- I came to Freiburg with a Humboldt Postdoctoral Research Fellowship.
- Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of California, Santa Barbara. I worked with Profs. Mustafa Khammash (Dept. of Mechanical Engineering) and João P. Hespanha (Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering).
- I defended my doctoral thesis in January 2011 at the University of Oxford, UK. I was with the Department of Statistics and the Life Sciences Interface Doctoral Training Centre as a member of Keble College. I worked under the supervision of Prof. Alison Etheridge (Dept. of Statistics) and Dr. Antonis Papachristodoulou (Control Group, Dept. of Engineering Science).
- I have an MSc degree (incl. undergrad studies) in mathematics from the Mathematical Institute of the Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), Budapest, Hungary.
