José Camacho Paéz (Head)

Professor with the Department of Signal Theory, Telematics and Communication and researcher in the Information and Communication Technologies Research Centre, at the University of Granada, Spain. He holds a degree in Computer Science from the University of Granada (2003) and a Ph.D. from the Technical University of Valencia (2007). He worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Girona and was a Fulbright fellow in 2018 at the Dartmouth College, USA. He specializes in extracting knowledge from data and the design of new algorithms to do so. He has more than 100 publications, half of them in highly cited impact journals (JCR).

Ana Camacho Paéz (PhD, CEO of Rekom Biotech)

She has an experience of more than 30 years in design and development of processes regarding the obtaining of recombinant proteins related to infectious diseases. She completed her PhD in the Institute of Parasitology and Biomedicine “López-Neyra” (Granada) and subsequently she worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Spanish National Biotechnology Centre (Madrid). After this period, she set up the Molecular Biology department of the biotechnology company Vircell, S,L, working there for eight years heading the Molecular Biology-1 department, focused on the design and development of recombinant antigens related to infectious diseases. In 2010 she established the biotechnology company Rekom Biotech in collaboration with the doctors Fernando Camacho Rubio and José Camacho Páez.

Michael Sorochan Armstrong (PhD, Data Scientist)

Michael Sorochan Armstrong completed his PhD in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Alberta in 2021, where he also worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow until August 2022. He received specialised training in multivariate statistics and machine learning from the International School of Chemometrics at the University of Copenhagen in 2019 and completed a research internship in the MacBio Lab at Soochow University in 2016. His research interests include unsupervised learning, tensor decomposition, and applied mathematics. He currently works as a Data Scientist in the CoDaS lab, analysing climate and remote sensing data with the LifeWatch ERIC program.

Collaborators

Carolina Gómez Llorente

Professor of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology II of the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Granada. Her research is mainly focused on the study of the influence of the intestinal microbiota on the pathology of diseases such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, asthma, etc. For this, she uses omics techniques, such as metagenomics, metabolomics, epigenomics. Together with these techniques, in collaboration with Dr. Camacho, they are using data analysis techniques that allow them to understand the complex mechanisms that contribute to the development of non-communicable diseases. Currently, his research activity is summarized in 49 publications in JCR, and he has an H index of 23, according to Web of Science.
