Erik Mosekilde


Erik Mosekilde is Professor in Biological Applications of Nonlinear Dynamics and Coordinator of the EU-sponsored Network of Excellence in Biosimulation – A New Tool in Drug Development (BioSim). The purpose of this network is to demonstrate how the use of mechanism-based simulation models can contribute towards a more rational exploitation of the information available in biomedical research as well as in the pharmaceutical industry.


In the area of nonlinear dynamics, Erik Mosekilde has contributed through detailed bifurcation analysis of a variety of realistic technical problems, including power electronic DC/DC converters and systems of coupled chaotic oscillators.
