Research Theme

Systems and Computational Neuroscience


I am a Reader in Computational Biology in the Computer Laboratory which is the department of Computer Science of the University of Cambridge and I am a member of the Artificial Intelligence group of the Computer Laboratory.

I hold a PhD in Complex Systems and Non Linear Dynamics (School of Informatics, dept of Engineering of the University of Firenze, Italy) and a PhD in (Theoretical) Genetics (University of Pavia, Italy). My research interests are: Bioinformatics algorithms, Predictive models in Personalised medicine, Modeling comorbidity and aging,

Methods for combining Multi scale biological processes, Statistics of Multi omics and Multi physics modelling of molecules-cell-tissue-organ interactions.
