About

I am a research scientist at the Institute of Biophysics of the Italian National Research Council (CNR).

My group's activity is focused on the application of computational models to interesting problems in biology and medicine at various scales, including protein-protein and protein-drug interactions. We make extensive use of molecular dynamics and statistical methods - see e.g. publications here. My background includes statistical physics, statistical learning, software and hardware engineering, and high-performance computational architectures.

I got tenured at the CNR in 2012. In 2009 I was awarded a 3-year Beatriu de Pinós grant by the Generalitat de Catalunya for the in silico characterization of protein-protein and protein-drug interactions via large-scale all-atom simulations, which I developed in the Computational Biophysics Group at the University Pompeu Fabra of Barcelona (GRIB-IMIM-UPF). Before 2008 I was with the Laboratory for Biomedical Informatics "Mario Stefanelli" of the University of Pavia, where we conducted research on artificial intelligence for health-care applications. I hold a PhD in Bioengineering and Bioinformatics (University of Pavia, 2005), and a degree in Physics (University of Pisa, 2001).
