Adrian is an enthusiastic bioinformatician focused on the analysis of large-scale genomic data sets, and a PhD student at the
Adrian's current research revolves around the design of computational methods for the extraction and analysis of high-dimensional data sets, with the aim of unravelling the evolutionary history of CTVT, an 11,000-year-old contagious cancer. As part of this research, he has developed Somatypus, a computational pipeline for identifying mutations in large numbers of cancer samples, and muttree, a tool for constructing phylogenetic trees and discovering recurrent mutations in them. Previously, during his computer science postgraduate studies and internship in Spain, Adrian developed IonGAP, an online platform for the assembly and analysis of bacterial genomes, as well as a QIIME-based workflow for the analysis of metagenomic sequence data.
His expertise is in genomic data analysis, statistical programming and computational pipeline design. He also writes scientific dissemination articles for his personal website, divulgatum.
