Guillermo Lorenzo


Hi ! Welcome to my personal webpage


I am a researcher in computational oncology.

The focus of my investigations is to build personalized mathematical models of the biophysical mechanisms underlying cancer growth and therapeutic response, with which I can make patient-specific forecasts of tumor prognosis using computer simulations. I believe that this predictive approach can dramatically contribute to advance clinical practice in oncology by delivering personalized solutions aiming at optimizing clinical outcomes for each patient.

I also work in modeling the mechanisms of development, treatment, and spread of other pathologies. Additionally, I am interested in constructing robust computational methods to efficiently and accurately solve my models in clinically-relevant times.

Thanks to a Marie Skłodowska-Curie global fellowship, I am currently working at the Center for Computational Oncology at the Oden Institute in The University of Texas at Austin, but I am also a postdoctoral fellow at Computational Mechanics & Advanced Materials Group at the University of Pavia in Italy.

Check out my research below and feel free to contact me if you are interested in discussing my work or any of the topics in this webpage. I am always open to new collaborations, delivering academic and popular science talks, or having a drink to talk science and else.
