Academic interests

I started working in a joint appointment between the Institute of Biosciences and Department of Informatics of the University of Oslo. My research project will be focussed on understanding regulome and identifying key components and interaction playing a role during development and in Cancer. Complex systems are of keen interest to me and my focus to develop Novel and robust methodology for integrative inferences to understand complex biological systems at the epigenomic, genetic and proteomic level.

Before joining UiO, I was working at the Department of Molecular Genetics at Erasmus Medical Centre, Rotterdam as a postdoctoral researcher, where my main focus was on integrative inferences using network studies on Single-cell genomics. Apart from this, I developed pipelines for cell segmentation, tracking, and isolation for images obtained from one of its kind in-house built Ultrawide field of View Microscope (UFOV).

I also won visiting CASyM (Co-ordinating Actions Systems Medicine across Europe) EU-FP7 grant as a postdoctoral research associate to work on the project related to epigenome modulation in Cancer at  Institute of Clinical Physiology, National Research Council of Italy, Siena in collaboration with Center for Computational Sciences of University of Miami. I did a PhD in Computational Biology from the Second University of Naples, and my PhD thesis focused on the Interactomic analysis of genes and proteins involved in chronic inflammatory diseases. During PhD. I worked on molecular modelling and dynamics of intrinsically disordered proteins along with network studies at protein structure networks, protein-protein interaction networks, gene-gene interaction networks. I´m keenly interested in integrative inferences on multi-omics data to identify hidden patterns and early warning signals at a system level for early detection of the diseases.
