I did a PhD at the Wageningen University (The Netherlands) focused on the study of gene expression variation in the nematode C. elegans by means of environmental and genetic perturbations. Since then I have been working in a similar subject but in human genetics, first at the Twin Research Department and Genetic Epidemiology (King’s College London, UK), and now here in Geneva.

My current research interests include the role of genetic variation in the diversity of changes observed in gene expression with age and under the effect of different environments. I am also interested on the genetics causes of age related diseases and other complex traits, like the development of diabetes or cancer and its progression with age.
