Yuri Pirola

Since May 2012, I am a post-doctoral fellow at DISCo, University of Milano-Bicocca (Milan) working on computational problems arising from large quantities of data now available in bioinformatics, with a special emphasis on haplotyping and gene structure prediction problems.

My main interests involve the study of the computational complexity of optimization problems, the design of exact/approximation/parameterized algorithms for their resolution, and their implementation and experimentation.

From January 2011 to April 2012, I was a joint post-doctoral fellow at DISCo, University of Milano-Bicocca and Parco Tecnologico Padano (Lodi), while I was a research collaborator at Parco Tecnologico Padano from March to December 2010.

I received a PhD in Computer Science in 2010 with a thesis on combinatorial problems in studies of genetic variations under the supervision of Paola Bonizzoni. I received my master degree in Computer Science in 2006 working on a thesis on problem difficulty measurement in Genetic Programming under the supervision of Leonardo Vanneschi and Giancarlo Mauri.

My Curriculum Vitae provides an up-to-date and detailed overview of my scientific interests and activities (last update December 22, 2015).

My education includes a summer school organized by CINECA on Parallel and Scientific Computing which I attended in 2006 (information on new editions are available here) and the Lipari International Summer School on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology of June 2008.

I have been a Visiting Scholar at University of California, Riverside invited by Prof. Tao Jiang from February to July 2009.
