I’m a PhD student in Computer Science at the department of Computer Science at the University of Milano Bicocca (DISCo) since November 2016. My main interests are in the area of theoretical computer science and they involve combinatorial problems on strings and graph, computational complexity and graph theory.
I’m currently focusing my research activity on problems concerning the identification of new alternative splicing events through an accurate pattern matching of strings against a graph.
