Hyun Youk, from the Department of Bionanoscience at Delf University of Technology in The Netherlands, is interested in understanding how interactions among molecules generate dynamical behaviours of living systems. He uses experiments, models, and theories to reveal how the small and large-scale networks of interactions cause and control behaviours of unicellular and multicellular organisms, with the aim to reveal quantitative behavioural rules and design principles that are common to many different cell types and organisms.

He has been invited by Jordi Garcia-Ojalvo (UPF).
