It's a perfect fit? Surely, and I want to present some of my interests here.
Since april 2005, I'm working in systems biology, first on more theoretical questions of network community measures, now in exchange with experimental biologists and medical scientists. The subject of my PhD thesis is the first attempt of applying methods and algorithms of a relatively new mathematical area - formal concept analysis - to the modeling of gene regulatory and signal transduction networks. Here not only specialized (mathematical or biological) skills are required, but associative thinking and - I hope so - a great part of my experiences of life and work. I would be happy about discussions concerning the subjects mentioned on my homepage!
