Timothy Knab, Ph.D.

Research Scientist

Tim joined Metrum in March 2017 after completing his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh where his dissertation was focused on modeling and controlling stress-induced hyperglycemia in critically ill patients. This work included dynamic optimization of models describing glucose-insulin dynamics and the development of model-predictive controllers and state estimators for clinical applications. Tim’s interests include the application of systems biology models to guide decision making in the drug development process and to advance treatment paradigms.
