I’m Tristan Stérin, a second year PhD. student in the TAPDANCE team at the Hamilton Institute, Maynooth University (Ireland), under the supervision of Prof. Damien Woods.

My current research lies at the intersection of DNA Computing and the study of Models of Computation. This research is best embodied by the following question: « How to use the interaction between DNA strands in order to implement some models of computation ? ».

In the past, my research has focused on Machine Learning, in particular the fields of Computer Vision, Music Generation and Finance.
