Hossameldin Ali (PhD student)

Hossameldin obtained his Bachelor's degree in Biomedical and Systems Engineering at Cairo University, Egypt. After that he moved to Glasgow, Scotland, where he completed his Master's degree in Bioinformatics at the University of Glasgow. His Master's thesis was in automating genotyping of simple sequence repeats structures of single gene disorders. Hossameldin is interested in mathematical and computational solutions for the interpretation and modelling of genomic data.

David Castellano (Postdoc)

David obtained his PhD in Genetics at the Institut de Biotecnologia i Biomedicina at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain. After that he moved to the Bioinformatics Research Centre at Aarhus University, Denmark, for his postdoc years. He started his second postdoc at the Centre for Genomic Regulation in February 2019 as Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow. David's research focuses on analyzing population genomic and functional molecular data, to answer pertinent questions in evolutionary genetics.

Maria Morlino (Master student)

Maria obtained her Bachelor's degree in Biotechnologies at the University of Bologna, Italy. She joined the lab for her Master's Thesis in Bioinformatics at the same university. Maria is interested in modeling mutation rate heterogeneity in cancer.

Michel Owusu (Postdoc)

Michel did his PhD at CeMM, the Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, in Vienna. He worked on genomic instability in cancer and rare diseases. He is an Erwin Schrödinger fellow and interested in the links between DNA damage/repair, mutations and selection in the evolution of malignant cells.

Miguel Rodriguez Galindo (PhD student)

Miguel obtained his Bachelor Diploma in Genetics at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain, where he continued with a Master's Degree in Bioinformatics. Miguel joined the lab in 2018 and is now a PhD student funded by a "la Caixa" Doctoral INPhINIT Fellowship. He is interested in constructing proper mutational null models for the characterization of the selection footprint left on non-coding somatic variants.
