Vincenzo Bonnici is “Ricercatore a Tempo Determinato (RTDb)”  - Temporary Assistant Professor with tenure track at the Department of Mathematical, Physical and Computer Science of the University of Parma (Italy).  He received the bachelor’s degree and the master’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Catania (Italy) in 2008 and 2011, respectively. He received the Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Verona in 2015. In 2013-2014 he ha been Visiting Researcher Scholar at the Institute for Genomics and Bioinformatics (IGB), University of California, Irvine, and in 2017 he has done an internship at the Fondazione per la Ricerca e la Cura dei Linfomi del Ticino, Istituto Oncologico della Svizzera Italiana, Bellinzona. From 2015 to 2019 he has been research associate at the University of Verona .
Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Algorithms and data structures, Graph Theory and Parallel computing are the main research interests of Vincenzo Bonnici. He has worked on the search of substructures within biomedical graphs, since his master’s degree period. He has extended such topic to the creation, integration, and creation of biological networks. His research topics also include computational genomics by developing innovative methods based on Information Theory for the analysis of genomic sequences. Phylogenomic and pangenomics are also among his research interests in which he studies computational methods for computing homology among biological sequences. He has also worked in the System Biology field by studying the  physical and functional relations of non-coding RNAs. Parallel computing is a cross-cutting theme for his research studies, and he has developed parallel solutions on top of different architectures, from SMPs to GP-GPUs. As a result of his research activities, he has published several papers in relevant scientific journals (Bioinformatics, BMC, IEEE/ACM TCBB, Nature – Scientific Reports), he won an international contest on graph matching within the 2014 ICPR conference and a best poster award at the  Jacob T. Schwartz International School for Scientific Research, and he has been speaker at 12 international scientific conferences.
Vincenzo Bonnici has been lead guest editor for the MDPI journals Energies and Future Internet, and he is reviewer editor for the journal Frontiers in Applied Mathematics and Statistics, section Optimization. HEnis reviewer for several scientific journals in the fields of Informatics and Bioinformatics, that include Briefing in Bioinformatics, Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge and Information Systems and 4 Frontiers journals. He has organized workshops, conferences, and schools such as the workshop in Challenges and Opportunities in Large Scale Network Analysis in System Biology co-localized with the IEEE BIBM 2018 conference, the conference and advanced school in International Proteomics and Metabolomics held in Verona in 2019, and the IEEE Signal Processing Society winter school on Imaging Genetics which will be held in Verona in 2019. He is also member of IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Computational Life Sciences, of the Bioinformatics Italian Society (BITS) e of the Gruppo Nazionale per il Calcolo Scientifico (GNCS) INdAM.
