Short Biography

David Granjon is a Post Doctoral Researcher. He joined the interface group in June 2017, after getting his PhD from Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris) as well as Université de Lausanne. This PhD thesis, supervised by Dr. Aurélie Edwards (UPMC) and Prof. Olivier Bonny (UNIL), consisted in building a mathematical model of calcium and phosphate homeostasis, so as to better understand its regulations and dys-regulations.

He has currently two main projects:

– translate the previously developed mathematical model of CaPO4 homeostasis into a user-friendly interface (using R-Shiny framework). This web applications will be used during various teaching courses.
– a Computational Physiology / Cardio-Renal Axis project in order to refine our knowledge about the relationship between renal and cardiac functions.

David holds a MSc in Mathematics and Computer Sciences applied to the life sciences, covering a wide range of topics such as physiology (Hodgkin–Huxley model…), morphogenesis (reaction-diffusion systems), ecology (prey-predator models, host-parasite systems), gene regulatory network (piecewise-linear models), metabolic networks (metabolic control theory). He is specialized in analyzing dynamical systems.
