KIWI-biolab Talk: Hosein Mohimani, Carnegie Mellon University

14.10.2021, virtual

We have invited Prof. Hosein Mohimani for a talk on October 14, 2021, at 18:00h. His talk is entitled “Computational methods for discovering microbial natural products with antibiotic activity”.

Prof. Mohimani is the head of the Metabolomics and Metagenomics Lab and Assistant Professor of Computational Biology at the School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, US).

His research focuses on the development of computational metabolomics and metagenomics methods for antibiotic discovery and microbiome analysis. Microbes in human body interact with their human host and with each other through small molecules (e.g. antibiotics and signaling molecules). Mining the human metagenome has shown that human microbiome has a great potential for production of small molecules. Most of such molecules remain unknown, even though they can play a crucial role on human health. Mohimani’s lab is specifically interested in analyzing large scale mass spectrometry and metagenomics data using tools from machine learning, genome mining, signal processing, graph theory, and statistics to discover novel genetically synthesized small molecules in the human microbiome.

You can visit his lab here.

Hope to see you all there!

KIWI-biolab Talk: Antonio del Rio Chanona, Imperial College London

15.09.2021, virtual

We have invited Dr. Antonio del Rio Chanona for a talk on September 15, 2021, at 16:00h. His talk is entitled “Data-driven optimization and control of chemical processes”.

Dr. del Rio Chanona is the head of the Optimisation and Machine Learning for Process Systems Engineering Group, at the Department of Chemical Engineering, and the Centre for Process Systems Engineering, Imperial College London.

His group has two main branches of research, on one hand, developing new and more efficient optimisation, reinforcement learning and machine learning algorithms that allow to solve general problems in the systems domain. On the other hand, applying existing state-of-the-art techniques to address current challenges in process engineering, being bioprocesses the main area of application.

KIWI-biolab Workshop 2021

19.05.2021, virtual

We are hosting an online KIWI-biolab workshop on 19.05.2021, 14:00h – 17:00h. We will start with a short presentation of our lab, followed by icebreaker board canvas to initiate scientific discussions on four paralel sessions corresponding to the four KIWI-biolab Task Forces.

Our PhD students will present and lead the discussion on Gathertown and Miro boards:

  • TF1 discussion “Modern time series models for irregular data”, Randolf Scholz
  • TF2 discussion “Progress and challenges in parameter estimation and model predictive control”, Judit Aizpuru
  • TF3 discussion “Predicting glucose sensor time series and its issues; Potential use cases of Raman spectra”, Christoph Lange
  • TF4 discussion “360° Lab tour, equipment automation in process industries, can KIWI contribute to a greener society?” and “From process description to adaptive scheduling” Lucas Kaspersetz and Stefan Maak
