My formal background includes computer science, computational biology and systems biology. I have extensive experience in the characterization of germline and somatic structural variations relevant to human cancers through the analysis of genomic and transcriptomic data generated by high density array technologies and next generation sequencing. Over the past five years, I have been active in multiple projects focused on the identification of diagnostic and prognostic prostate cancer biomarkers. My expertise also includes the formal foundation and application of concurrency theory, rule-based models and stochastic simulation to study the interaction dynamics of biological networks together with strong skills in statistical and network analysis, in large-size datasets manipulation and parallel programming.
