Short Bio

I am associate professor at the University of Bologna (Italy). I am PhD in physical sciences from the University of Bologna with scientific background is in Structural Bioinformatics. In the last years my research activity moved toward the study of the effect of SNVs resulting in single amino acid polymorphisms. I applied tools for the analysis of protein three-dimensional structure to predict the effect of single point protein mutations on the protein stability developing machine learning methods to predict the free energy change upon mutation and pathogenic variants. The main goal of my research activity consists in the understanding of the relationship between genomic variations and disease using large amount of data derived from high-throughput techniques. I am interested to design new disease-specific algorithms and new tools for the personal genomics and personalized medicine.
