I am a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University, in the Department of Statistics, working with Prof. Holmes.
My research focuses on women’s health and menstrual health in particular. This includes research on fertility, on cycle-related symptoms and on drivers of changes in vaginal microbiome communities. I use a combination of self-tracked data from mobile phone apps and devices and clinical multi-omics data.
I obtained my PhD in computational biology from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), in Switzerland, where I worked on the molecular regulation of the circadian clock. In particular I was interested in the regulation of rhythmic gene expression and protein translation combining analyses of -omics data with mathematical models describing the regulatory dynamics to infer quantities otherwise not measurable.
I have also specialized in the visualization of data and, during my industry experience, have helped companies and organizations to take data-driven decisions.
