Alexandru Iosif

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Andreas Schuppert's group at the Joint Research Center for Computational Biomedicine (JRC-COMBINE), in Aachen. I am interested in the interaction between Algebra and the Sciences with particular focus on Algebraic Systems Biology. I am a member of the SYMBIONT Project.

I did my PhD at OvGU Magdeburg. My advisors were Carsten Conradi and Thomas Kahle. I was an associated fellow to the Research Training Group MathCoRe.

Current adress:
JRC-COMBINE, Pauwelsstrasse 19, Level 3, 52074 Aachen, Germany.
