Davide Ballabio

Graduated in Environmental Sciences in 2002 and since then he has been working in chemometrics and chemical modelling. In 2007 he discussed his PhD thesis (Multivariate analysis applied to food science) and he is now professor of analytical chemistry, chemometrics and chemoinformatics at the Milano Chemometrics and QSAR Research Group (University of Milano – Bicocca, Italy). He has 15 years experience in multivariate analysis applied to both analytical and QSAR (Quantitative Structure Activity Relationships) data; he also likes to code MATLAB toolboxes for the calculation of multivariate models and share them publicly. You can find some of them in the Milano Chemometrics and QSAR Research Group website:
