    I graduated from Munich University (Biophysics) in 2007 and thereafter spend 3 years at KITP working with Boris Shraiman on problems in population genetics. Since October 2010, I am at the Max-Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Tuebingen, where I am currently building up a small research group. My research interest are the population genetics of rapidly evolving and strongly selected organisms. On one hand, I am studying the interplay of recombination, selection and genetic interactions using theoretical models, on the other hand, we are analyzing time series sequence data of HIV. The latter allows us to observe evolution as it is happening.

    I am interested in a broad range of questions in systems and computational including:

    - How they achieve robustness against noise and perturbations (PNAS 2007, PRL 2008, Science 2002)?
    - How topological properties of these networks affect their functioning inside living cells (Nucleic Acids Research 2005, Phys. Biol. 2007, BMC Bioinformatics 2006, PRL 2004, Science 2002)?
    ...
    I am currently a post-doc in the group of Michael Laessig at the University of Cologne. I am interested in using models of experimental evolution to measure parameters and test predictions from population genetics. Recently I have been using the lac operon of E. coli as a model to study the evolution of regulatory sequences. In order to understand how these elements evolve, it is important to analyze the impact of changes in protein expression on fitness. In other words, knowing the intermediate phenotypes which are affected by mutations at the genome level, will help us understand the impact of particular mutations on fitness.

    I am doing my first postdoc in the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Plant Biology (IBMCP) in Valencia, Spain. I am a biologist working in nonlinear dynamics, complex systems, and systems biology. My fields of research are the hypercycle (i.e., catalytic networks), quasispecies theory (origin of life and RNA viruses) and theoretical ecology. I am working as a theoretician in the lab of Prof. Santiago F. Elena. We are working on plant virus evolution and dynamics. I mainly work with differential equations and simulation models (Montecarlo simulations, digital genomes models, ...). I am also interested in bifurcation theory and chaos in biology. If you want more detailed information about my work and publications you can visit my website here.

    Hi all, I have done the reservation for the restaurant tonight. We are expected to be there at 7:15 PM. I have reserved for 12 people. Now there are 9 people that will join in. Once the list grows beyond 12 people, you should call to the restaurant to say that you are also coming. The telephone number is: 9647881. Thanks.
    We are going to have the classical Thursday dinner at Beachside Bar and Grill Goleta, 5905 Sandspit Road, Goleta, CA. The restaurant is very close to KITP. Please note down your name in case you want to join in. You can also send an e-mail to me: josep.sardanes@upf.edu

    I am an FCT postdoctoral fellow working in the Physics of Biological Systems Research Group (with Prof. Ana Nunes, the University of Lisbon) and in the Theoretical Physics Group (with Prof. Alan McKane, the University of Manchester). I have been interested in the spatio-temporal modeling of the dynamics of infectious diseases and of predator-prey systems. My approach is based on the use of stochastic simulations together with analytical methods of dynamical systems, statistical physics and stochastic processes.
