Computational Project Manager

Florent Guinot

Data Science

“As a data scientist with a biological background, I thrive using my skills and knowledge in data science to bring innovative therapeutic solutions to patients.”

Your role at Institut Roche and brief presentation of your professional background:

I joined Institut Roche in 2021 as a Scientific Project Manager in computational mathematics. My role is to develop and manage projects in data science to accelerate the innovation in biomedical research. I have a data science profile with several years of experience in both public and private sector combined with a background in biology thanks to my agricultural engineering degree.

My Focus at Institut Roche:

My focus is to manage projects and partnerships that make use of computational mathematics to drive innovation on biomedical research in several therapeutic areas (Neurodegenerative disease, oncology, immunology, blood diseases). I am also involved in research projects to provide insights in data mining, statistical analysis and machine learning.
