The Team


Elisabetta Mereu

Group Leader

Elisabetta earned a MSc in mathematics and a PhD in genetics at the University of Cagliari (Italy). Since 2016, she works in the analysis of single-cell genomics data. She is convinced that the integration of math and biology is crucial to understand human diseases. 


Aina Rill

PhD Student

Aina obtained a MSc in Bioinformatics and BSc in Human Biology at UPF (Barcelona). She is motivated to work on clinical studies in autoimmunity and other immune-mediated disorders. 


Marta Casado

PhD Student

Marta obtained a MSc in bioinformatics at the University of Glaskow (UK) after her studies in genetics (AUB, Barcelona). She is curious to learn how cellular dynamics drive complex biological processes.  


Mario Acera

PhD student

Mario has a MSc in Interactive Intelligent Systems and a BSc in Industrial Engineering. He's interested in applying deep learning in Spatial Transcriptomics data.


Anton Popov

PhD student

Anton studied applied mathematics at the National Technical University of Ukraine. He has experience in the analysis of images. He's enrolled in the Industrial PhD program of Catalunya with the aim to implement new machine learning models in clinical applications. 

Ane Martinez

PhD student

Ane studied biochemistry at the University of Navarra (Pamplona, Spain), where she also obtained a MSc in Computational Methods in Science. During her master, she worked in a collaborative project with the Center for Applied Medical Research (CIMA), in order to group Lung Cancer patients according to their gene expression profiles. She is now motivated to analyze single-cell data to to understand the pathological mechanisms underlying prostate cancers.
