Visitin’ UC Irvine, Southern California

UC Irvine
Dear friends, I’m glad to inform you that from today I’m a visiting PhD student at University of California Irvine (Irvine, Orange County, Southern California, Usa). I’m going to work in the Pierre Baldi‘s research group at the Institute for Genomics and Bioinformatics of UC Irvine.

I’m going to stay here for some months, working on deep learning.

Stay tuned!
