Research interests

I'm currently doing a PhD in Systems Biology at the University of Liège. My research focuses on the analysis of nonlinear biological models. My current interests include:

  • Performance and robustness of biological bistable and excitable models
  • Quantitative analysis of the apoptotic process
  • Reliable transmission of information in spiking neuron models
