About myself

Welcome to my small site! My name is Sergi Picart and I have completed Industrial Engineering and a Degree in Mathematics. I deeply thank CFIS (UPC, Barcelona, Spain) for this opportunity.

Currently, I am pursuing a PhD in Biomedical Engineering, advised by Alexandre Perera in the B2SLab. I enjoy playing with math, statistical learning and programming. Likewise, computational biology is an amusing and rewarding field to explore. My main research topic includes interpretable diffusion algorithms on biological networks, combined with functional analysis on metabolomics, transcriptomics and proteomics studies.
