Marc is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at Pividori Lab in the Department of Biomedical Informatics and the Colorado Center for Personalized Medicine (CCPM) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

Prior to joining the Pividori Lab, Marc earned his PhD in Biomedicine and Bioinformatics at Endocrine regulatory genomics at the Parcelona Biomedical Research Park (Barcelona, Spain). His primary research focused on insulinomas, a form of pancreatic cancer, where he analyzed the associated regulatory networks and somatic mutations. This work led to the discovery of genetic variations that affect the deregulation of noncoding functions in insulinoma. Furthermore, he extended his research to study the regulatory networks in type 1 diabetes, aiming to better understand the disease’s mechanisms. Beyond his research, he developed UMI4Cats, an efficient, user-friendly software for analyzing quantitative chromatin contacts, now widely available through Bioconductor. His contributions have been pivotal in advancing our understanding of complex diseases and enhancing bioinformatics tools in the scientific community.

As a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Pividori Lab, Marc is focused on exploiting next generation of computational methods and artificial intelligence methods to dissect genetic and epigenetic data. His goal is to extract meaningful biological insights that can pave the way for novel interventions and therapies, ultimately contributing to the improvement of human health.

Outside of his professional endeavors, Marc is passionate about outdoor activities, including hiking, biking, climbing, and skiing. He values quality time with friends and family and enjoys organizing large dinners to celebrate these connections.
