Eduard Kerkhoven

Forskare at Chalmers, Biology and Biological Engineering, Systems and Synthetic Biology

Dr. Eduard Kerkhoven is a project leader in the department of Biology and Biological Engineering. His interest is in the use of computational models of metabolism, and he is involved in both the generation of these models and the experimental testing of hypotheses derived from the modeling. These models can be genome-scale reconstructions, or small-scale dynamic models. In particular, Eduard’s research is focused on the use of microbial cell factories, such as the yeast Yarrowia lipolytica, that can be used to generate biofuels.
