Diogo Borges Lima


I have a Bachelor in Computer Science from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) and a M.Sc. in Computer Science in Artificial Intelligence from the Systems Engineering and Computer Science Program also from UFRJ. I hold a PhD in Biosciences and Biotechnology from Carlos Chagas Institute / Fiocruz supervised by Dr. Paulo Costa Carvalho and Dr. Fabio Cesar Gozzo. We have developed a search tool, called SIM-XL, to work with complex scenarios of cross-linked peptides for aiding in structural proteomics or protein-protein interactions studies. I had a Post-doc in computational proteomics at Institut Pasteur - Paris, in the Mass Spectrometry for Biology Unit, supervised by Dr. Julia Chamot-Rooke, where I have worked on the developments of new bioinformatics solutions for the analyses of top-down proteomics data. Currently, I'm Data Scientist in Proteomics at CeMM, in the Winter Lab, where I have been working on the developments of new strategies to target undruggable proteins for the treatment of cancer.

I have experience in Proteomics Data Analysis (Bottom-up & Top-down) and Quantitative Mass Spectrometry, Structural Mass Spectrometry, Natural Optimization (e.g., Genetic Algorithms, Particle Swarm Optimization, Ant Colony Optimization, Simulated Annealing), Statistical Classifiers (e.g., Support Vector Machines, Bayesian Classifiers etc.), Artificial Neural Networks (e.g., Feed Forward with back propagation), Statistical Inference and advanced experience in Java, C# and C++.
