Alexander Martynov

PhD student

Supervisor: Konstantin Severinov

Entry year to Skoltech – 2014

Previous research:

Master (Specialist) degree from Lomonosov Moscow State University, Faculty of Bioengineering and Bioinformatics

Master’s thesis: Investigation of main digestive peptidases classes from two species of darkling beetles: Tenebrio molitor and Tribolium castaneum; Supervisor: Elpidina E.N.

Research interests:

Currently my main field of interest is mathematical modeling of biological processes and systems biology. My projects involve modeling of various processes that involve bacterial infection by phage and CRISPR-like bacterial defense systems.
