Olaf Wolkenhauer

Olaf Wolkenhauer (www.sbi.uni-rostock.de) received his first degrees in control engineering from the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg, Germany and the University of Portsmouth in the U.K. in 1994. He obtained his PhD from the University of Manchester, Institute of Science & Technology (UMIST) in 1997, for research on the application of possibility theory to data analysis. Following a research lectureship at the Control Systems Centre at UMIST and a research fellowship at the Technical University Delft in the Netherlands, he directed his research towards systems biology. This led to a joint senior lectureship with the Dept. of Biomolecular Sciences and the Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Electronics, at UMIST. In 2003 he moved to the University of Rostock in Germany, where he holds the Chair in Systems Biology and Bioinformatics. Since October 2004 he is an adjunct professor in the Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, USA. Since 2005 he is a fellow of the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study (STIAS).

Dagmar Waltemath and Olaf Wolkenhauer, University of Rostock, Germany. Most scientific discoveries build upon previous or other findings. The discovery process therefore relies heavily on the reproducibility of scientific results. A lack of transparency and openness led to what many consider a... Read more
