Current SED-ML Editors

The SED-ML specification is written by an editorial board consisting of five editors. They are elected by the SED-ML community (members of the sed-ml-discuss mailing list) and serve for 3-year terms as volunteers.

 

David Nickerson

David Nickerson (editor, elected 2015-2017)
David Nickerson (PhD in Bioengineering) is a Senior Research Fellow in the Auckland Bioengineering Institute where he leads the Auckland Kidney Physiome project. David is also involved in many aspects of the CellML project as well as various cardiac modeling projects. He also develops several CellML-related software tools and is the current CellML delegate to the COMBINE coordination group.

Lucian Smith

Lucian Smith (editor, elected 2016-2018)
Lucian Smith (PhD. in Biochemistry) works as a Research Scientist for both the University of Washington with the Sauro lab, and for Caltech with the SBML Team. He is the co-creator of Antimony and, more recently, of phraSED-ML, and has been an SBML editor, working extensively with the SBML Hierarchical Model Composition specification.

Matthias Koenig

Matthias König (editor, elected 2017-2020)
Matthias König (PhD. in Biophysics) leads an independent junior research group in computational modeling of the liver within the German LiSyM consortium.

Brett Olivier

Brett Olivier (editor, elected 2015-2017)
Brett G. Olivier (Ph.D. in Biochemistry) is a Researcher in the Systems Bioinformatics group at the VU University Amsterdam . His interests range from fundamental theoretical research (metabolic regulation analysis, control analysis, constraint based modelling) to software design and development (CBMPy, PySCeS, JWS Online) and the development and implementation of open modelling standards.

Dagmar Waltemath

Dagmar Waltemath (editor, elected 2015-2020)
Dagmar Waltemath (Ph.D. in Computer Science) is a junior research group leader at the Systems Biology and Bioinformatics group at Rostock University (Germany). Her group works on improving the management of computational models in standard formats and associated simulations in SED-ML format (SEMS).

Past members of the SED-ML editorial board

Ion Moraru (editor, elected 2014-2016)
Ion Moraru (M.D., Ph. D.) is a Professor of Cell Biology in the Richard D. Berlin Center for Cell Analysis and Modeling at the University of Connecticut.
Sven Sahle (editor, elected 2014-2016)
Sven Sahle (Ph. D. in Theoretical Chemistry) is a junior group leader in the department for modeling of biological processes at the University of Heidelberg. He's one of the lead software engineers of COPASI. His interests include kinetic modeling of signaling and metabolic processes with a focus on dynamic properties of biochemical models.
Jonathan Cooper (editor, elected 2012-2015)
Jonathan Cooper is a Research Fellow in Computational Science based in the Computational Biology Group at the University of Oxford, with a background in computer science, software engineering, and computational biology. He has been working with biological markup languages (notably CellML) since 2005, is a core developer of the Chaste computational biology software, and is currently developing the concept of "functional curation", building on SED-ML.
Frank Bergmann (editor, elected 2011-2014)
Frank T. Bergmann (Ph.D. in Computational and Systems Biology) is a researcher at the California Institute of Technology where his primary interest is in standardization efforts around SBML. He is also the lead developer of the Systems Biology Workbench along with the LibSEDML library.
Dagmar Waltemath (editor, elected 2011-2014)
Dagmar Waltemath (Ph.D. in Computer Science) is a junior research group leader at the Systems Biology and Bioinformatics group at Rostock University (Germany). Her group works on improving the management of computational models in standard formats and associated simulations in SED-ML format (SEMS).
Andrew Miller (editor, 2011-2012)
Andrew Miller is a researcher at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute. His research interests focus around the representation of mathematical models; he is involved in the development of tools for processing CellML models, including SProS, a SED-ML processing service that forms part of the CellML API.
Richard Adams (editor, 2011-2012)
Richard Adams (Ph.D. in Cell Biology) is software project manager at the Centre for Systems Biology, Edinburgh. He works on the SBSI systems biology software framework, SED-ML tools and the jlibsedml Java library for SED-ML.
Nicolas Le Novère (editorial advisor, 2011-2012, 2013)
Nicolas Le Novère is a group leader at the EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute. His research unfolds along two axis: 1) modelling neuronal signalling, at the molecular, sub-cellular and cellular levels, and 2) developing tools and resources for systems biology, in particular including standards.
David Nickerson (editor, 2011-2013)
David Nickerson is a Research Fellow in the Auckland Bioengineering Institute where he leads the Auckland Kidney Physiome project. David is also involved in many aspects of the CellML project as well as various cardiac modeling projects. He also develops several CellML-related software tools.
