For students

NEW: A PhD position is available to work in my group at the Department of Biosciences of the University of Milan. Please see

My group hosts qualified undergraduate (laurea triennale e specialistica) and PhD (dottorato) students willing to work on computation-based projects. Mentoring will take place in collaboration with an academic advisor (relatore interno) at your home institution.

Projects are currently available in the following research areas (inquire for details):

  • Statistical learning algorithms and their application in biomolecular simulations, computational chemistry, and other big data sets.

  • Adaptation of biostatistical algorithms and models, with their application to, e.g., disease progression, survival prediction, and motion analysis.

What you need:

  • A degree-in-the-making: engineering, physics, and chemistry and biology (as long as you have an interest in quantitative and computational aspects) courses will usually find interesting and challenging projects.

  • A reasonable knowledge of computer programming and of the English language.

  • A supporting professor in your home institution ("relatore interno").

What you get:

  • You will be developing analysis methods with the aim to contribute to actual, ongoing research and scholarly papers.

  • You will learn to use state-of-the-art software, methods and development practices.

  • Supervision generally occurs via a combination of on-site and remote sessions.

  • We'll collaborate with Italian or foreign institutions, depending on your interest, topic, and availability of data.
