Leonardo Pellegrina

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padova. In my research I work on providing novel efficient and statistically sound algorithms for knowledge and pattern discovery from data, often motivated by biological applications.
I obtained my Ph.D. in Information Engineering from the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padova, under the supervision of Prof. Fabio Vandin (Vandin Lab website). I also had the amazing opportunity of visiting the Department of Computer Science of Brown University, as a Visiting Research Fellow under the supervision of Prof. Eli Upfal.
