Senior Bioinformatician

Translational Bioinformatics

Domenico is a computational biologist, with more than 10 years’ professional experience of high-quality scientific research at the intersection of biology, computer science and statistics. He initially trained in computer science and moved into bioinformatics by joining Anna Tramontano’s lab at Sapienza University of Rome, where he developed, tested and applied computational methods to the evaluation of the expected quality of predicted three-dimensional protein structure models. He then joined David Jones’ group at University College London, first as a Marie Curie post-doctoral fellow and then as co-investigator of two BBSRC responsive mode grants to improve the state of the art in annotating intrinsically disordered protein regions and predicting gene function.

His current research activities predominantly involve statistical analyses, visualization techniques and using machine learning to link heterogenous data sources from low and high throughput technologies to biomedical phenotypes, which are of interest to the academics and clinicians at Guy’s and St Thomas’ and King’s College London.
