Pier Francesco Palamara
I obtained my "laurea di Primo Livello" and "Laurea Specialistica" (B.S. and M.S. degrees) from Rome's Sapienza University, and a M.S. degree from Columbia University (Dec. 2009). In the past I did research in A.I. and Robotics.
I defended my Ph.D. thesis "Population genetics of identity-by-descent" at Columbia University in October 2013. My Ph.D. advisor was Itsik Pe'er. I am currently at the Harvard School of Public Health and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, working as a post-doctoral research fellow in Alkes Price's group.
