Giovanni Guglielmi (he/him)

Ph.D. student


Giovanni graduated in Statistical Science from the University of Milan-Bicocca, where he learnt statistical inference, parameter estimation and stochastic process analyses applied to financial and economic data. He completed an MSc in Financial Engineering from the University of Birmingham with distinction. He continued his research as an MRes and worked on the anomalous diffusion process in mitochondrial motion in breast cancer cells under the supervision of Dr Fabian Spill. During his MRes, he worked as a Teaching Associate of Risk Analytics for the Business School at the University of Birmingham and Introduction to Statistical Learning for the Business School at the Huanzhong University of Science and Technology. After completing his MRes with no correction, Giovanni was awarded the Priestley Scholarship Joint PhD programme between the University of Melbourne and the University of Birmingham, where he works on multi-omics analysis and integration techniques under the supervision of Dr Vijay Rajagopal and Dr Fabian Spill.

Research Themes

Research Projects

Giovanni Guglielmi is a Priestly joint PhD student in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Melbourne and in Mathematics at the University of Birmingham, under the supervision of Dr Vijay Rajagopal (University of Melbourne), Dr Fabian Spill (University of Birmingham) and Dr Sean Lal (University of Sydney). Giovanni's PhD project examines heart physiology, in particular, mechanistic changes that occur during ageing, ischemic and dilated cardiomyopathy. His research aims to create a workflow for detecting differentially expressed analytes, dysregulated pathways and data-driven mechanistic models within the left ventricle framework.
