I am currently recognized postdoctoral researcher at the Computational Biology Group at the Life Science Departamente. My area of expertise is in the field of systems biology and scientific computation where most of my research has been on reconstruction and simulation of biological networks. Here at BSC my line of research is the development of systems biology approaches to personalized medicine, with a particular focus on cancer. We use different modeling approaches to integrate heterogeneous sources of information with two main objectives: 1) developing tools to assist in the decision-making process of choosing the most adequate therapy for specific patients given their unique genetic/background; and 2) improving our knowledge of basic cancer biology.
