Predoc Trainee

Ph.D. student with a background in marine ecology and bioinformatics, he specializes in the analysis of omic data from viruses infecting marine microeukaryotes. His focus lies in understanding Genomic Eukaryotic Virus-Host interactions. Moreover, his thesis explores the temporal and spatial distribution of these viruses, utilizing diverse omic datasets, including time series of metagenomes and Single Amplified Genomes (SAGs). He contributes with innovative approaches such as the use of neural networks to enhance our understanding of marine viral dynamics.
