Research Interests


I am mostly interested in the study of the genetic factors that contribute to the development of neurodegenerative diseases, not only but mainly Alzheimer’s disease. Then, I also explore other OMIC datasets and perform functional studies on iPSC to understand how these genetic polymorphisms contribute to the pathology of these diseases.
