I am interested in epigenetics behind autoimmune disease. Specifically, I study the relationship between chromatin accessibility, transcriptional signatures, and clinical presentation in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.

I have been involved in multiple projects since I first started doing research in 2015. They have ranged from electrochemistry to cancer, to neurodegeneration and ageing. I have a solid background in benchwork research and to further develop my multidisciplinary skillset in research, I have recently made a transition to bioinformatics. I am currently working to understand how epigenetics and transcriptional profiles, in immune system cells, drive clinical presentation in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. Ideally, in the future, I hope to conduct clinical trials and put novel pharmaceuticals on the market.
