I’m the Head of Bioinformatics at the Quadram Institute Bioscience, with an interest in reproducible and scalable pipelines and microbial (meta)genomics data analysis.

I pursued a PhD in Biochemistry and Biotechnology, focusing on bioinformatics applications for Next Generation Sequencing since the field’s advent. In Italy, I led the bioinformatics activities of a sequencing provider (BMR Genomics), moving to the UK in 2017 to join the Core Bioinformatics team at this Institute.

Core Bioinformatics maintains both hardware and software infrastructure to support the research in microbial genomics. To ensure the reproducibility and traceability of our experiments, we have a dedicated sequencing output archival system based on IRIDA, we maintain a Galaxy Project instance (and we added several tools to the Galaxy Toolshed), and a private cloud based on OpenNebula.

The best asset of our core is an experienced team of senior scientists, including the Head of Phylogenomics Dr Leonardo de Oliveira Martins, the cloud and pipelines expert Dr Thanh Le Viet, and support bioinformaticians with a strong focus in microbiome analysis (Dr Alise Ponsero and Dr Sumeet Tiwari).

Our team has organised several hackathons in the past, and we are always happy to engage with other binfies from all over the world.
