Brett G. Olivier's Old HomePage
Thanks for visiting my old homepage, for the latest information about me and/or my work please try my blog at http://www.bgoli.net where this page will redirect in 30 seconds.
Computational Biochemist specializing in Systems Biology with experience in both fundamental theoretical research (metabolic regulation analysis, control analysis, constraint based modelling) and software design and development (PySCeS-CBMPy, PySCeS, JWS Online).
My current research includes developing and applying constraint based modelling techniques to the analysis of microbial communities and multiple environments. This involves both the development of theory (going from one to many organisms) but also software tools for large scale optimization.
I am also actively involved in the development of standards in Systems Biology e.g. I co-ordinate the Package Working Group for the SBML Level 3 extension Flux Balance Constraints used to describe constraint based models.
