In 2013, she’s joined the University of Luxembourg as an Associate Professor of Systems Biomedicine and as ATTRACT Fellow. Her research aims to improve our understanding on how diet influences human health by building comprehensive models of human cells and human-associated microbes. In particular, Ines Thiele is interested in applying constraint-based modeling to better understand inherited and neurodegenerative diseases. She has published the results of her research efforts on metabolic networks in numerous international scientific papers and she features as first author on the recent Nature Biotechnology article of the large international effort to produce a global reconstruction of the human metabolism. She also acts as a reviewer for several journals and funding agencies.
