Dr. Mathieu Lavallée-Adam
Mathieu Lavallée-Adam is an Assistant Professor at the University of Ottawa in the Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology and at the Ottawa Institute of Systems Biology. He obtained a B.Sc. in Computer Science and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from McGill University. He then performed his postdoctoral research at Scripps Research. His research focuses on the development of statistical and machine learning algorithms for the analysis of mass spectrometry-based proteomics data and protein-protein interaction networks. He also designs computational methods mining proteomics datasets for biological information through their integration with genomics data. Dr. Lavallée-Adam is a recipient of the John Charles Polanyi Prize in Chemistry, recognizing the impact of his algorithms on the proteomics community. One of his publications was also recognized as the Highlight of the Year by an early career researcher at the HUPO World Congress. He is also Co-Chair of the HUPO Early Career Researcher Initiative.
