Elena S. Dimitrova

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences and Faculty Scholar in the School of Health Research at Clemson University. My research involves theoretical development and practical application of algebraic models of biochemical networks. I also work in algebraic design of experiments with the goal of determining the optimal amount and type of experimental data needed for algebraic model construction. The models used in this work are time- and state-discrete dynamical systems, described by polynomial functions over a finite field.
