I am working on a wide metabolism model with a focus on glucose homeostasis. The aim is to expand the current models to better simulate the glucose homeostasis during a fasted state and to investigate the effects of spontaneous short term stress on the endogenous glucose production.

Hopefully, by connecting and reworking existing metabolism models, a new tool to understand our bodies will be created. This not only to further advance automatic insulin pumps, finding the optimal parameters to maximize the bodies glycogen stores, but also understanding the true effect of diets and its impact on your metabolism and energy levels.
