Pablo G. Cámara is an Assistant Professor of Genetics at the University of Pennsylvania and a faculty member of the Penn Institute for Biomedical Informatics. He received a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics in 2006 from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. He performed research in string theory for several years, with postdoctoral appointments at Ecole Polytechnique, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), and University of Barcelona. Fascinated by the extremely interesting and fundamental open questions in biology, in 2014 he shifted his research focus into problems in quantitative biology, and joined the groups of Dr. Rabadan, at Columbia University, and Dr. Levine, at the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton). Building upon techniques from applied topology and statistics, he has devised novel approaches to the inference of ancestral recombination, human recombination mapping, the study of cancer heterogeneity, and the analysis of single-cell RNA-sequencing data from dynamic and heterogeneous cellular populations.
