Our congratulations to Michael Pan, who has been awarded his PhD at the Systems Biology Lab for his thesis entitled “A bond graph approach to integrative biophysical modelling”.
In his thesis, Michael used bond graph methodology to examine how energy is transferred between different biochemical and biophysical processes within cells. He developed new mathematical and computational methods for the analysis of energy flow within cellular biochemical networks and applied these methods to study heart cells. His work provides a foundation for the development of detailed modular, energy-based computational models to direct future advances in biotechnology.
Many congratulations Michael!
