My main interests are in the field of

  • Computational biology

  • Data compression

  • Machine learning

  • Statistical learning

  • Information theory and coding.

We just released the webiste of MITOGEN (Mutual Initiative to Tackle Optimal Genomic ENcoding): https:mitogen.github.io. It contains the joint work performed by the academics working on MPEG-G, including the papers and github repositories of the work relevant to MPEG-G. Note that some projects are still under develop, such as GABAC and Genie. Enjoy!
