Researcher

Emiliano Mancini has a Bachelor degree in Physics from the University of Roma Tre (Italy) and a Master in Physics from the University of Tor Vergata (Italy). He worked at the Istituto per le Applicazioni del Calcolo “Mauro Picone” (IAC) of the Italian National Research Council. Later he obtained his PhD in Computational Science at the University of Amsterdam (Netherlands) in 2014. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Complexity Institute of the Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) and Programme Developer (Health Systems Complexity) at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) of the University of Amsterdam. He worked as Lead Data Scientist in a Singaporean Startup and as a Scientific Consultant for other health startups in Singapore.

Currently, he works as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Mathematical Research Center in the Institute of Life Sciences and Technology of the Daugavpils University (DU) and his also affiliated to the AIGHD as modelling expert.

His research focuses on the development and optimization of predictive models of biological complex systems, in particular on modelling the human immune response (both adaptive and innate) to different insults and pathogens. Since 2006 he has worked in close contact with clinicians, virologists and immunologists specializing in interdisciplinary research. He started working on antimicrobial resistance in 2017 in collaboration with AIGHD and coordinates the collaboration between DU and the other two modelling partners (AIGHD and IAC).
