Since January 2014 Heinz Koeppl is a full professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at TU Darmstadt. Prior to that he was a SNSF assistant professor at the Automatic Control Lab of ETH Zurich and a group leader at IBM Research – Zurich.

He got his M.Sc. in theoretical physics from Graz Karl-Franzens University, Austria (2001) and his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Graz University of Technology, Austria (2004). After doing his civil service for the Austrian federal government for a year, he went on as a Schroedinger fellow to UC Berkeley, USA to work with Leon Chua at the EECS department. From fall 2006 to fall 2010 he has been a postdoc at the Laboratory of Nonlinear Systems (Martin Hasler) at the School of Communication and Computer Sciences, EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Federal de Lausanne) Lausanne, Switzerland. In spring 2008, he was a visiting research fellow at the Department of Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston USA, working together with Walter Fontana.

Heinz is currently working on parameter inference and on model selection and reduction in the context of cellular signal transduction. He works closely together with the group of Matthias Peter at the Institute of Biochemistry, ETH Zurich. Heinz is also leading a project with Novartis Institute for BioMedical Research (NIBR) Basel on computational drug-target identification.
