About

After an undergraduate training in Mathematics, I earned a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Udine, under the supervision of prof. Alberto Policriti, focusing on sequence bioinformatics and in particular on local de novo assembly approaches for short read sequencing data.
At Sorbonne Université, under the supervision of prof. Alessandra Carbone, I developed statistical potentials for predicting protein-protein binding modes; I also worked on the extraction of co-evolution patterns in highly conserved protein families.
More recently, I got interested in single-cell sequencing data analysis, thanks to a period spent at Institut Curie, which allowed me to work on several projects focused on the study of the cells of the immune system.
At CGS-IIT, in collaboration with EMBL-EBI, I develop computational methods for the analysis and integration of single-cell sequencing assays, with a specific focus on understanding drug resistance in cancer.
