Juan J. CáceresPhD student, Bioinformatics Department of Computer Science Royal Holloway, University of London
Afterwards, since 2011, I have worked as a network administrator, and junior researcher at the National University of Asunción, while doing my Computer Engineering thesis and teaching a couple of courses at my Alma mater. The main topic of my research, as a member of the Laboratory of Scientific and Applied Computation – Polytechnic Faculty – National University of Asunción, were parallel iterative solvers for optimal control problems.
In 2014, I have started my PhD studies at Royal Holloway, University of London in Bioinformatics, where I am under the supervision of Prof. Alberto Paccanaro.
My current line of work lies on systems biology, in particular a systemic disease analysis. In this context, I am also interested in information diffusion on graphs and semantic similarity measures of medical descriptions.
