My research activities has been to use mathematical models and Computational Biology to answer biological questions, intertwining in silico and experimental methods at all stages. I have a strong interest in exploring the interfaces between Fundamental Biology and bona fide Engineering, specifically in the realm of environmental and industrial problems. The research goals of my group are to contribute to the elucidation of mechanisms underlying basic cellular processes, evolution and ecological
