Pirola Yuri

Since May 2012, I am a post-doctoral fellow at DISCo, University of Milano-Bicocca (Milan) working on combinatorial problems arising from bioinformatics and computational biology, with a special emphasis on haplotyping and gene structure prediction problems.

My main interests involve the study of the computational complexity of optimization problems, the design of exact/approximation/parameterized algorithms for their resolution, and their implementation and experimentation.

From January 2011 to April 2012, I was a joint post-doctoral fellow at DISCo, University of Milano-Bicocca and Parco Tecnologico Padano (Lodi), while I was a research collaborator at Parco Tecnologico Padano from March to December 2010.

I received a PhD in Computer Science in 2010 with a thesis on combinatorial problems in studies of genetic variations under the supervision of Prof. Paola Bonizzoni. I received my master degree in Computer Science in 2006 working on a thesis on problem difficulty measurement in Genetic Programming under the supervision of Leonardo Vanneschi and Giancarlo Mauri.

Please refer to my AlgoLab page for up-to-date and complete information about my research and teaching activities.
