Short CV

     Papasavvas Christoforos comes from Limassol, Cyprus. He is about to obtain his Diploma in Computer Engineering and Informatics and currently working on his thesis with title: “Construction of a human PPI network and detection of protein complexes”. It’s considered an essential problem in Bioinformatics and the techniques used come from the area of Computational Intelligence and Machine Learning. He is very interested in the applications of Informatics in other disciplines, especially in Life Sciences, thus he’s looking forward to starting his postgraduate studies in Neuroinformatics.
