Research interests

During the last years I have been focused in the development of algorithms and software for big data analysis and visualization in the context of Genomics. Some technologies include HPC (GPU, AVX2), Apache Hadoop (MR, HBase), NoSQL (MongoDB) or HTML5 for data visualization.



About us

The Cambridge Big Data Strategic Research Initiative brings together researchers from across the University to address challenges presented by our access to unprecedented volumes of data. Our research spans all six Schools of the University, from the underlying fundamentals in mathematics and computer science, to applications ranging from astronomy and bioinformatics, to medicine, social science and the humanities

In parallel, our research addresses important issues around law, ethics and economics, in order to apply Big Data to solve challenging problems for society.

Cambridge Big Data supports collaboration and knowledge transfer in this growing field.
