About me and my personal interests

After a Bachelor course in Applied Informatics, I enrolled in a Master in Life Sciences programme, studying a diverse range of bioinformatics topics, including ontologies. I also studied microarray techniques for my Master Thesis, where I developed a workflow for Agilent, Affymetrix and Amersham chip data. 

When I started working for Leaf Bioscience s.r.l. in Milan, Italy, I found that the ontological field was far more challenging than what I had learnt at university before. At Leaf Bioscience we applied the OBI and related OBO ontologies to a European project called DC-THERA European Network of Excellence that dealt with the field of immunobiology and dendritic cells, and we created a Knowledge Management System (KMS) called the "DC-THERA Directory". As a second job I also  worked in close collaboration with the Italian Association of Telemedicine and Medical Informatics (@ITIM) / "Istituto Internazionale di Tele-Medicina" (IITM) Association and the Euro-Mediterranean Medical Informatics and Telemedicine Association (EMMIT), Italy, where I participated in another EU project called NEUROWEB in the neurology field. 

After working some time in the ontology field in collaboration with the Fraunhofer SCAI Institute, I am currently employed by the Bonn-Aachen International Center for Information Technology (University of Bonn, Germany) and SCAI and work on my PhD in the field of semantics and modeling in systems biology.
