About

me

I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Computer Science from the University of Milano-Bicocca (Milan, Italy) in 2013 and 2015, respectively. My Master's thesis mainly focused on the simulation of large-scale biochemical models. I designed and developed a novel approach accelerated on Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). I obtained my PhD in Computer Science with a thesis on "High-Performance Computing to tackle complex problems in life sciences", under the supervision of Prof. Daniela Besozzi and Prof. Paolo Cazzaniga, at the University of Milano-Bicocca (Milan, Italy) in February 2019. During my PhD programme, I spent different months abroad as PhD visiting student at the Department of Cancer Biology (Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, USA) and the Computer Laboratory (University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK). During my PhD, I mainly focused on the usage of High-Performance Computing (HPC) platforms, especially GPUs, to tackle complex problems in life sciences. I also exploited Computational Intelligence meta-heuristics to deal with the intrinsic complexity of different well-known problems in life sciences (e.g., the Parameter Estimation in Systems Biology, Haplotype Assembly in Genome Analysis, enhancement and segmentation of bimodal Magnetic Resonance Images).

 

From November 2018 to November 2020, I was a Research Associate at the Department of Haematology of the University of Cambridge (Cambridge, UK) and Wellcome Trust – Medical Research Council Cambridge Stem Cell Institute (Cambridge, UK). In addition, I was a visiting worker at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, Wellcome Trust Genome Campus (Hinxton, UK). During this period, I mainly worked on the analysis of single-cell sequencing data by both proposing novel approaches and strategies to analyse these data, especially single-cell RNA data.

Since December 2020, I am a Experienced Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Human and Social Sciences of the University of Bergamo (Bergamo, Italy). I currently work on the integration of Computational Intelligence and Machine Learning approaches with HPC strategies and architectures to tackle and solve complex and/or computationally intensive problems in Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Computational Systems Biology, and Medical Imaging. I strictly collaborate with expert biologists and physicians with the aim of performing data integration analyses and proposing novel and advanced computational strategies to support personalised medicine.

 

Thus, my main scientific interests include Computational Biology, Computational Systems Biology, Bioinformatics, Machine Learning, Computational Intelligence, High-Performance Computing, and Biomedical Image Analysis.
