Research interests

My research is in the areas of machine learning, deep learning, text and sequence mining. Now I am putting the focus on predicting site binding and future trends in microbiology by applying big data computing methods.

Prior to joining the UFZ, I was working as associate professor of Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence and Algorithms and Programming at Computer Science and Information Technology Department of Simon Bolivar University, Caracas- Venezuela, where I directed many researches focused on extracting actionable information from medical data, such as patient information, medical record, examination data, laboratory tests and biosignals readings: phonocardiogram (PCG), photoplethysmogram (PPG), electrocardiology (EKG), electroencephalography (EEG), electrooculography (EOG), electromyography (EMG) and oxygen saturation (SaO2).
