Petar Veličković

Hello, and welcome to my page!

I am currently working as a Research Assistant in Computational Biology within the Artificial Intelligence Group of the Computer Laboratory, where I am working on developing machine learning algorithms on complex networks, and their applications to bioinformatics.

Apart from that I'm also a PhD student within the group, supervised by Dr Pietro Liò and affiliated with Trinity College.

I hold a BA degree in Computer Science from the University of Cambridge, having completed the Computer Science Tripos in 2015.

muxstep: an open-sourced generalised C++ library implementation of the Multiplex (GM)HMM model proposed in previous research, designed to be immediately useful out-of-the-box as well as easily extendable for specific user needs.
