His research focus lies at the intersection of data mining and bioinformatics, aiming to design computational approaches for the analysis of large bio-datasets. Beyond his research, he has a keen interest in both Open Science and Training; in this capacity, he is the deputy Training Coordinator for ELIXIR-GR and a Trainer in the Carpentries. His recent work includes the ELIXIR/Carpentries lesson on the 4 Simple recommendations for Open Source Software and the RDA Data Discovery Paradigms Interest Group output "Eleven quick tips for finding research data".
