David Murrugarra

I develop computational tools for modeling, analysis, and control of gene regulatory networks. I have focused on discrete methods, which employs techniques from discrete mathematics, combinatorics, graph theory, and computational algebra. I am also developing efficient methods for optimal control of large probabilistic models using techniques from Markov decision processes.

I am also interested in the computational prediction of RNA secondary structure using machine learning techniques.

I am also interested on using deep learning techniques for classifications problems in Systems Biology and Bioinformatics.
