Curriculum Vitae




Resarch Interests

I like to be on the frontier between Biology and Computer Science. I am coming from a Computer Science background, with a special interest in Machine Learning approaches for clustering, supervised and semi-supervised classification, feature selection. In 2009 I started learning Biology, while designing and developing software tools for comparative genomics. During my Ph.D. in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics I developed Model Checking techniques for the simulation of Genome Scale Metabolic Networks of human liver cells.

Here at the Stazione Zoologica I am in the BIOINforMAtics service (see: http://bioinfo.szn.it/). I am mainly involved in the development of new methodologies and tools for the exploration, visualization and processing of NGS data coming from marine organisms, with a special focus on comparative genomics and metagenomics problems.
