Pablo Iáñez Picazo

PhD student, Barcelona

Doctorate in Spain, 2022

Born in Granada in 1995, Pablo Iáñez Picazo is a bioinformatician and data scientist from Spain. He holds a BSc in Biochemistry from the Universidad de Granada and a MSc in Bioinformatics from the University of Copenhagen. He is particularly curious about the potential applications of machine learning and deep learning algorithms in big biological data, which will pave the way towards precision medicine.
He has studied single-cell multi-omics data analysis and integration in Elisabetta Mereu’s lab Cellular Systems Genomics at Josep Carreras Institute. He is also an active member of the Human Cell Atlas consortium, where he collaborates in the creation of the first atlas of open chromatin at single cell resolution of the pancreas.
Before this, he was trained in Fernando Racimo’s lab and in Thomas Hamelryck’s lab, mainly developing deep learning and bayesian methods in the fields of protein structure and population genetics.
