My name is Nathanaël Aubert-Kato. I am currently an assistant professor at the department of Information Sciences, from the Ochanomizu University (Tokyo, Japan).

My research focus is on modeling, simulating, and designing molecular programming systems. My long term research goal is to provide methods to develop and program DNA computing-based smart materials.

I follow two research directions:

  • Bottom-up: considering a specific set of interactions among molecules, create the right model and simulation tools, leading to the discovery of emergent properties

    Approach: mass-action kinetics; ODE/PDE; data analysis

  • Top-down: considering a target abstract behavior, define modules or lower-level behaviors that are required and can be implemented more easily.

    Approach: agent-based modeling; evolutionary strategies
