I am a computational scientist working on the development of methods and algorithms for the experimental design, analysis and modeling of biological systems. I received B.S. and M.S. in Statistics from the University of Venice (Italy), and a Ph.D. from The Microsoft Research – University of Trento Centre for Computational and Systems Biology (Italy). I’m fascinated by the systemic approach in trying to understand biology, and more recently, I brought it to the synthetic level, trying to build artificial cells that can interact with natural ones.
I joined the University of Miami in February 2016, and am working on the challenging but fascinating LINCS project (Library of Integrated Network-based Cellular Signatures) as part of the BD2K-LINCS Data Coordination and Integration Center.
