I am PhD student at the Computer Science Department of the University of Milan. Since October 2015 I have joined the "Anacleto Lab" under the supervision of Prof. Giorgio Valentini.

My research interests belong to the areas of Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and Machine Learning with applications ranging from basic Molecular Biology to Medicine. Currently the main research line in which I am involved in is the design and development of hierarchical ensemble methods for the automated function prediction of proteins (an open fundamental challenge in molecular biology) and for the prediction of the associations between human genes and abnormal phenotypes, a crucial step to discover novel genes associated to genetic diseases and cancer.

I received my M.Sc. in Molecular Biotechnology and Bioinformatics from the University of Milan in 2015 discussing a thesis entitled "Hierarchical Ensemble Methods for Biological Ontologies Structured as Directed Acyclic Graphs" ( pdf_icon_link, Italian).
