Thomas E. Gorochowski
Complexity Scientist and Synthetic Biologist
I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow on the Marie Curie Initial Training Network for Integrated Cellular Homeostasis (NICHE) based at the DSM Biotechnology Center in Delft. My research focuses on studying how bacteria engineered to act as cellular factories for producing important products such as insulin, respond to these production demands and stress. This has applications for improving production processes in biotechnology and providing foundational knowledge for the emerging field of synthetic biology.
I have a very broad range of research interests spanning from complexity, network theory and dynamical systems to synthetic biology and evolution. When not working behind the computer or in the lab, I enjoy racket sports (mostly tennis and badminton), spending time far away from civilization in the great outdoors (hiking, camping, snowboarding), and fly fishing on warm summers evening down by the river.
Don't worry, I'm not as scary as I look in the picture.
