Gustavo Hime

Applied Mathematics
Zentrum für Biosystemanalyse
PhD Student with Junior Fellow Hauke Busch


Gustavo Hime attended Computer Science at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he graduated Cum Laude in 2001. For ten years (1998-2008) he worked in roles of increasing significance as research assistant for the National Institute for Pure and Applied Math, mostly in projects directly connected to the petroleum industry, which included close collaboration and scholar visits to TUDelft and Stanford. Concomitantly, in the years 2005-2007, he conducted his MSc in Computational Modelling at the National Laboratory for Scientific Computation in Petrópolis, under joint supervision of Dr. Bruno Schulze and Prof. Dr. Dan Marchesin, developing parallel numeric engines for high resolution fluid dynamics simulations. As of November 2010 he is pursuing his PhD in the field of Systems Biology at FRIAS.


FRIAS Project

Our focus as part of the GerontoSys program, which involves researches from the universities of Freiburg, Düsseldorf and Heidelberg as well as from the DKFZ, is first to identify potential markers and targets (both for intervention and examination) related to aging in the stromal tissue; second in time comes the iterative cooperation with the experimentalist parties in the consortium for verification and validation, hopefully producing valuable insight to aging mechanisms across multiple time scales, from gene expression onsets to cell decay.
