Personal profile

Research interests

My current research is mainly focused on the study of the influence of genetic factors on common human diseases from an evolutionary, genetic epidemiological, epigenetic and functional point of view.

Specifically, I am interested on complex loci including mitochondrial DNA copy number, nuclear CNVs and non-recombining haplogroups. I have also published a number of studies on specific human diseases.

The analytical approaches used include association studies (and GWAS), causal analyses through Mendelian Randomisation, Bioinformatics, Population Genetics and whole-genome sequence analysis in consanguineous families.

Previous work includes linkage disequilibrium analyses, developing and patenting a new method for dinucleotide repeat genotyping, study of the human chromosome Y in the context of complex traits and statistical genetic analyses of two candidate genomic regions (the IGF2-INS-TH region and the ACE-GH cluster) in relation to metabolic and cardiovascular risk traits. My experimental laboratory work included specific SNPs, microsatellites and method developments.
