Rikard Johansson

I am a PhD-student in Systems Biology, employed at the Department of Biomedical Engineering (IMT). At IMT me and my supervisor Gunnar Cedersund coordinates a Systems Biology Core Facility, providing modeling competencies to other research groups at Linköping University.

I have a bachelor in biology from Gothenburg University and ended my studies with a 2-years master program in Systems Biology, working on my thesis in Stefan Hohmann’s group where I did experimental and modeling work on cross-talk of MAPK-pathways in yeast cells.

I am currently working on projects in close collaboration with Peter Strålfors’ group at IKE, where I chiefly model different aspects of insulin signaling. I am also working in collaboration with Alejandro Colman Lerner in Buenos Aires on mother-daughter asymmetry in yeast cells. Previously I have worked in a theoretical collaboration with Jens Timmer’s group in Freiburg, dealing with bootstrapping and model selection and discrimination. I’m also involved in teaching and supervision of new student’s in the group.
