Dr. Harold Fellermann is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for Fundamental Living Technology (FLinT) at the University of Southern Denmark. He studied Applied System Science at the University of Osnabrück, Germany, where he specialized in modelling and computer simulation of complex biophysical systems.
Harold is interested in the physical foundations of functionalized matter. He has worked extensively on self-assembling, self-sustaining, self-replicating and evolving molecular systems, where he developed spatially resolved full life-cycle simulations of artificial protocells. Recently, he has worked on minimal replicator DNA systems as well as DNA computation. Within the COBRA MatchIT project, he develops theoretical calculi that allow the expression of complex compartmentalized reaction systems, their interaction and programmatic manipulation in microfluidic and MEMS environments.
Ultimately, Harold is interested in developing next-generation modelling frameworks for physically immersed computation in natural and synthetic biology.
