Yuri Pirola

Since October 2019, I am an assistant professor at DISCo, University of Milano-Bicocca (Milan) working on computational problems arising from large quantities of data now available in Bioinformatics.

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 December 2015, I was a 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 overview of my scientific interests and activities (check the extended version for additional details).

My education includes a summer school organized by CINECA on Parallel and Scientific Computing which I attended in 2006 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.
