Research Interest

My research focus at this moment is in the Bioinformatics field. I work in the modeling of cancer tumors on the long term, and the interaction that come by with factors such as medication and immunological system. The knowledge on the tumor progression gives an aid in the medical task of defining a suitable treatment, and in the development of new treatments.
I've worked before in the search of Promoters in DNA and in the development of software for searching the association between protein polymorphisms and the occurrence of gastric pathologies.
Besides Bioinfomatics, I am interested in formal methods and operations research, fields in which I have worked too.
