Kristian Vlahoviček

Kristian Vlahoviček studied Molecular Biology at the University of Zagreb, Croatia, and obtained his PhD in Bioinformatics, working on a prediction of physicochemical properties of DNA. He spent 10 years as a research fellow at the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, Trieste, Italy. He established a computational biology group at the University of Zagreb in 2002, where he moved permanently in 2006 with the EMBO Young Investigators Programme Installation Grant. He authored more than 50 papers and teaches computational biology and bioinformatics at the Division of Biology, Faculty of Science. His bioinformatics group develops computational tools and uses machine learning techniques to tackle open questions in developmental genomics, cancer epigenomics and metagenomics.
