|Michael Hucka, Ph.D.
Dr. Hucka is a researcher and programmer at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science. He is one of the designers and developers of the ERATO Systems Biology Workbench (SBW), an ongoing project to develop an open-source, integrated software environment for systems biology. Dr. Hucka is also one of the designers and developers of the Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML). SBML is a proposed standard XML-based language for representing biochemical network models in systems biology. It is used as the native format of models communicated between software applications in SBW.
Prior to joining the SBW/SBML development effort, Dr. Hucka was a postdoctoral scholar in the Division of Biology at Caltech. There he worked on GENESIS, a simulation package for neural modeling, and the Modeler's Workspace, a software system for enabling researchers to interact with simulation tools as well as databases of neural models and data.
Dr. Hucka received his Ph.D. in computer science and engineering from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, Michigan) in 1998. His Ph.D. research was in the area of computational neuroscience. He received his M.S.E. in computer science and engineering from the University of Michigan in 1991, and Honors B.S. degrees in computer science and in electrical engineering from the University of Utah (Salt Lake City, Utah) in 1986 and 1987, respectively.
