Luca Ferretti

Senior Researcher in Statistical Genetics and Pathogen Dynamics

After completing an MSc from Scuola Normale Superiore and a PhD in theoretical particle physics from SISSA, Dr Ferretti moved to Barcelona, Cologne and Paris to focus on population genomics. In 2015, he moved to the Pirbright Institute (UK) to study dynamics of pathogens and viral-host interactions. 

His current research at the Big Data Institute involves an interplay of epidemiology, genetics, evolution and within-host dynamics of HIV and other viral pathogens such as FMDV and ASF.
