Curriculum

La ricerca di Manuele Bicego si focalizza principalmente sulla Statistical Pattern Recognition, una disciplina che mira a studiare e sviluppare tecniche, algoritmi e modelli per l’analisi di dati reali, tipicamente caratterizzati in termini di classi o gruppi (categorie). In questo contesto Manuele Bicego ha prodotto contributi sia metodologici che applicativi, legati a diversi contesti, quali l’analisi di immagini e segnali, la biometria e, in maniera preponderante, la bioinformatica (analisi di dati di espressione genica, proteomica, metabolomica).
L’intensa attività scientifica in questi contesti è confermata dalle numerose pubblicazioni in importanti riviste e conferenze internazionali, dai premi e riconoscimenti ricevuti, dalla continua attività editoriale e di revisione, dalla partecipazione a vari progetti di ricerca finanziati, e dalle numerose collaborazioni instaurate con diversi centri di ricerca, corroborate da periodi anche lunghi di soggiorni e scambi.

Topic Description Research area
Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Design and testing of Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning techniques for the analysis and understanding of biological data. In particular the main focus in on designing solutions for the analysis of "counting data" - namely data which express the level of presence of entities (e.g. gene expression data, or proteomics data) - using probabilistic graphical models like topic models. The main goal is to devise highly interpretable solutions, being interpretability of methods and solutions the most stringent need in nowadays bioinformatics research.

Applied computing - Life and medical sciences
Pattern Recognition The main focus is on the study and development of automatic techniques and models able to extract information from real world data, typically in terms of classes or clusters. Special attention is on probabilistic models - like Hidden Markov Models, Mixtures, Topic Models - and on kernel machines - like Support Vector Machines. In these contexts the interest is in designing novel models/methodologies, like hybrid generative-discriminative methods, generative embeddings and kernels, novel classification or clustering schemes, model selection techniques and others. The focus is on reasoning on representation issues (how to extract features, how to process the original problem space) as well as on unconventional employment of standard techniques (like boosting or SVM for clustering). Another field of interest is the processing of sequential data (using for example Hidden Markov Model). Sistemi intelligenti
