• Mathematical modeling and parameter estimation of biological systems
• Model-based optimization and control of biological
• State estimation (software sensors) for biological systems
• Biological network analysis (metabolic flux analysis, flux balance analysis,
flux variability analysis), especially for underdetermined systems (more unknown fluxes than available equations)
• Typical applications : microorganism
(yeast, bacteria) or animal cell cultures in bioreactor (batch, fed-batch, perfusion) in the framework of agro-food and biopharmaceutical industries
