It gives me great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Dimitris Dimitriadis, who is applying for an entry-level position at your firm. I have known Dimitris for one year as a supervisor in a project at my group, Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics Team, at Biomedical Research Foundation, Academy of Athens, www.bioacademy.gr/bioinformatics .
Dimitris has worked in a project for developing a bioinformatics method of Gene Fusion Analysis ( biological computerized method to analyse genes ). He proved to be a fast learner, mastering the needed bioinformatics tools in record time. His work proved to be of high quality, as it was approved for presentation at the ECCB 2010 conference and was published at the prestigious international journal, BMC Evolutionary Biology.
As far as his personality is concerned, Dimitris demonstrates leadership skills, is capable of driving a team but also contributes to team effort substantially. He is communicative, gets along very well with his fellow students and faculty and is an active listener.
On the academic grounds, he is a hard-worker, who manages his time effectively and knows how to set priorities in order to achieve his objectives. He also demonstrates excellent organizational skills, strong analytical ability and superb critical thinking. In addition, he has the ability to see things from several different perspectives; hence, he can adjust to the demands of a different academic culture with ease.
I am very confident in his abilities and convinced that he will succeed in his endeavors.
