Research interests

Our work deals primarily with the development and application of computational methods for the understanding of the behavior of biological systems. In particular, we focus on two problems:

  1. analysis and control of natural biological systems (systems biology) and
  2. design and optimization of novel, useful biological systems (synthetic biology).

Problem-driven methodological developments. Our methodological is guided by real-life biological problems defined and studied in close collaboration with experimentalists. This approach ensures the biological relevance of the proposed methods and tools.

Formally, this amounts to the analysis of high-dimensional non-linear uncertain dynamical systems. To deal with this problem, we use high-level representations (stochastic automata, timed automata, state transition graph) and develop abstraction methods to relate them. Additionally, we use state-of-the-art numerical simulation, global optimization and sensitivity analysis techniques.
