My name is Arthur Carcano, and I am currently a PhD student in Computer Science with the InBio team at Institut Pasteur and Inria in Paris.
As part of, and apart from, my PhD work, I program in Rust and Python.
Research-wise, I design algorithms that:
- use statistical and probabilistic methods to measure how much information biologists can obtain from an experimental protocol,
- and use this informativeness measure to automatically design the most interesting experiments to perform.
I also carry-out these experiments at the bench to demonstrate their high-yield of information.
Before starting my PhD, I was a student at the computer science department of École Normale Supérieure (ENS) in Paris, France.
While at the ENS, I graduated from the Interdisciplinary approaches to life master program, and from the Parisian master of research in Computer Science.
