Mr Enrico Trombetta

  • Research Assistant (Computing Science)

Biography

I pursued a BSc degree in Computer Science at the University of Glasgow in 2021.

In summer 2020 I worked inside GRILL under the supervision of Dr. Jeff Dalton.

Research interests

Together with Dr. Jessica Enright from the FATA team and Dr. Anthony O' Hare from the University of Stirling I am developing mathematical-biological models and strategies to tackle the spread of salmonid parasites such as Lepeophtheirus salmonis and Caligus salmonis, both commonly referred to by the umbrella term "sea lice".

Our goal is to find (pseudo-)optimal strategies to treat the lice while reducing side effects on fish population and mitigating treatment resistance development.
