I am currently working in the Rinn Lab at the Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology Department of Harvard University. In a broader scale, my research interests have been focused in studying genome and transcriptome variation across individuals, populations and species.

My latest published research is an in depth study of postranscriptional regulation of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) to understand the role that lncRNAs play in the regulation of gene expression.

During my first postdoc, I focused on the study of the human transcriptome across a wide range of tissues and individuals. In this study, we tried to understand how variation of gene expression and splicing across tissues and individuals can explain human phenotypic variation and can ultimately be linked to disease.

Finally, my PhD was focused on studying the genetic variation of human populations to make inferences on our recent evolutionary history.
