ABOUT Dr. Paola Lecca

Paola Lecca received a Master Degree in Theoretical Physics from the University of Trento (Italy) in 1997 and a PhD in Computer Science in 2006 from the International Doctorate School in Information and Communication Technologies at the University of Trento. From 1997 to 2000 she was a Research Assistant at Fondazione Bruno Kessler Centre for Information Technology, Trento (Italy) by the research unit Predictive Models for Biomedicine and Environment. In 2001-2002 she was Research Assistant at the Department of Physics at the University of Trento with a scholarship of the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics.

Since 2006 she is researcher at The Microsoft Research University of Trento Centre for Computational and Systems Biology (CosBi), Italy. Her principal research interests are biochemical system identification and model calibration, stochastic chemical kinetics, reaction-diffusion systems, experimental design for parameter and structural biological inference, drug metabolisms and in silico clinical trials.

Paola Lecca is author of many conference and journal papers in the areas of biophysics, bioinformatics, biological and medical research. A complete list of publications can be found at the url http://www.cosbi.eu. In 2007 she won the young researchers' best-paper grant for the article "Molecular mechanism of glutamate-triggered brain glucose metabolism: a parametric model from FDG PET-scans", Brain, Vision and Artificial Intelligence 2007, LNCS (Ed. F. Mele, G. Ramella, S. Santillo and F. Ventriglia), Springer Verlag, 2007. In 2009, in team with 11 CoSBi researchers integrated with 3 French researchers and 1 German researcher she won first prize at international modeling competition in Dagstuhl, Germany.

Paola Lecca held a teaching position at The University of Trento with the courses on "Computer Science Methods in Physics" and "Simulation of Biological Systems" for master students in Physics and Computer Science.
