Who we are

The group

We are located in the Department of Biosciences of the University of Milan. Due to the nature of computational work, we collaborate both in person and online.

The group includes the PI, yours truly, and students with a passion for AI, computational modeling, statistics, and affine topics. Lab members belong to several institutions. Currently, lab members are:

Interested in joining? Drop me an email. We do have an opening for PhD students, as well as thesis (master project) opportunities.
