Welcome to the personal website of Dr. Adrianto Wirawan
Adrianto Wirawan was awarded the Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in 2010. His Ph.D. thesis is titled "Heterogeneous Multi-Core Systems for Bioinformatics". He received his Bachelor degree (Hons) in Computer Engineering from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in 2005. During his course of study, he was awarded the prestigious RSS Scholarship Award for his postgraduate studies and ASEAN Scholarship Award for his undergraduate studies, respectively.
He is currently working as a Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter - Post Doctoral Research Fellow at Institute für Informatik, Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, Germany. His current research topic is on high performance computing on bioinformatics. Since 2012, Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz is part of the highly acclaimed CUDA Research Center and CUDA Teaching Center.
He previously worked as a Research Fellow in the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore working on determining the genetic mutations and phenotypic changes associated with the development of in vitro and in vivo polymyxin resistance in paired clinical Acinetobacter baumannii isolates. His previous projects also include working on genomic analysis and development of a new multilocus variable-number tandem-repeat analysis scheme for molecular epidemiological typing of Acinetobacter baumannii.
His research interests include bioinformatics, computational biology, sequence alignments, high-performance computing, as well as parallel algorithms and architectures.
