Research Interests:

Ph.D. candidate in Computational Biology at Harvard University I hold a Master from the Ecole Normale Superieure (ENS) ULM. With an expertise in Data Science and Machine Learning I focused on sequence data and image analysis. I am an advocate of inter disciplinary projects and believe in collective inteligence as the key to solving complex problems.
