Emanuel Weitschek

Emanuel Weitschek is researcher in Computer Science at the Department of Engineering of Uninettuno University. Additionally, he works with the bioinformatics group of the Institute of Systems Analysis and Computer Science Antonio Ruberti of the Italian National Research Council (IASI - CNR) in Rome. Emanuel graduated in computer engineering and obtained the PhD in Computer Science at the Department of Engineering at Roma Tre University. His research interests are big data science, machine learning, biomedical data analysis, bioinformatics and software engineering. Emanuel is involved in following projects: big data extraction, extension, integration, and classification; clinical data mining; gene expression profile analysis, viruses/bacteria classification with alignment-free techniques, species classification with DNA Barcode sequences, and next generation sequencing (NGS) analysis. Previously, Emanuel was member of the data base group at Roma Tre University working on the GenData 2020 project, whose aim is the design and the development of a distributed and standardized infrastructure for NGS and clinical experiments. Emanuel published more than 40 papers in international peer reviewed journals, conferences, and technical reports. Finally, Emanuel was speaker at several international conferences all over the world (e.g., China, Australia, USA, and Europe), where he met many foreign researchers that are now collaborating with him.
