Dr Maria-Anna (Marianna) Trapotsi

In January 2022, Marianna joined our piRNA team to support our study of piRNA cluster evolution using machine learning and synteny-based approaches. She also took part in our ‘Camformers’ team in the DREAM challenge where she developed a TensorFlow version of our deep learning model.


Marianna holds a Master of Pharmacy and a Master of Science by Research in medicinal computational chemistry from the University of Hertfordshire. She also holds a PhD from the University of Cambridge, which focused on using heterogeneous information sources for understanding and predicting biological effects of compounds.
