Dr. Dirk Fey
Dipl.-Ing. Technische Kybernetik
I was born in Heidelberg
My research interest focuses on dynamical mathematical models of biochemical reaction networks. Mathematical modelling is a fundamental tool in systems biology that is essential for understanding dynamic and quantitative phenomena, checking consistency of hypotheses and/or data, as well as obtaining experimentally testable predictions.
Systems Biology Ireland, University College Dublin offers PhD stipends within a structured 4 year programme. Successful candidates could work with me on applying control theoretical methods to cell signalling and gene regulation networks involved in child cancers. See the PhD programme flyer and the SBI web page or contact me for detailed information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
