We are interested in the molecular organization and evolution of cellular systems, in particular metabolism. Our major aim is to understand design principles that arise from the optimization of complex systems through natural selection. In our work, we frequently combine functional metabolic modelling with evolutionary simulations and compare evolutionary predictions with measured data. This allows us a mechanistic understanding of how complex systems have evolved, and how they are likely to evolve in the future.
