Curriculum Vitae





Research interests

My research interests are focused in different bioinformatics sectors, in particular in the genomics and transcriptomics fields. During my PhD in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at the University of Naples “Federico II” and in my postdoctoral activities I had experience on microarray and RNA-seq analyses, de novo assembly, comparative genomics and gene annotation.
At the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dorhn I’m involved in the BioInforMatics project (http://bioinfo.szn.it/). My role is the set up of genomics, transcriptomics and comparative genomics dedicated analyses, and their on line distribution. Moreover, I am involved in favouring the implementation of procedures and methods that are transferred as a service to the SZN scientific community.
