New face: Andrea Raffo

New Postdoc at the Section for Genetics and Evolutionary Biology (EVOGENE). From Italy.

My interest in tackling real-world problems dates back to my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Mathematics at University of Genoa (Italy). First, I had an internship at the National Research Council of Italy (CNR-IMATI, Genoa, Italy), where I focused on the retrieval and classification of 3D meshes based on geometry and texture. Then, I spent 7 months at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Bergen, Norway, for the writing up of my master thesis on the estimation of physiological parameters from 4D MRI data.

During my Ph.D. studies at the University of Oslo and SINTEF I continued to cultivate my interests in applied and computational mathematics by exploiting existing and developing novel mathematical methods for geometry reconstruction and shape analysis. Examples of applications I work(ed) on include: reverse engineering for Computer Aided Design; approximation of scalar fields for computer graphics and earth sciences; and shape description for the retrieval, classification and clustering of 3D models.

From 2020 to 2022 I worked as a research fellow at CNR-IMATI within the TEACUP project (innovative methods and TEchniques for compUtationally modelling, Analysing and Comparing digital models of Proteins), while starting to dive into the worlds of point cloud segmentation, pattern recognition and shape compression.

At IBV I will work with Prof. Jonas Paulsen in the project: "URGE-3D: Unraveling new gene dysregulation modules in cancer through integrated multi-constraint 3D genome modeling”.
