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 inferring phylogenetic trees and discovering recurrent mutations in them. Previously, Adrian received an Extraordinary Degree Award and other honours for his computer science studies in Spain, where he 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 genetic variation analysis, statistical programming and conceptual design of computational workflows. He also writes scientific dissemination articles for his personal website, divulgatum.
