My scientific interest is focused on understanding the important role that epigenetic mechanisms play in different diseases, especially mood disorders affecting pregnant women and cancer. These diseases may not look particularly related, but epigenetic deregulation plays a crucial role in all of them, and they have a significant social and economic impact in our society.

My research combines locus specific studies (targeting specific genes), using molecular and cell biology techniques, and genome wide studies, using cutting edge high throughput technology (‘omic’ research) and bioinformatic tools.
