My primary research interest lies in the interface between computational statistics and bioinformatics, specifically developing and applying methods and tools for omics data analysis. However, I now spend more than half of my time at collaborative research in Human Genetics with Dr Grinberg and Balcells team (Genetic bases of osteoporosis project);  Paleogenomics with Dr Lalueza-Fox (Institute of Evolutionary Biology, (CSIC-UPF)) about statistical analysis for Ancient-DNA projects and nanomedicine with Dr Trigueros team co-director, Oxford Martin Programme on Nanotechnology and Academic Fellow at the Physics Department, Oxford University about the properties and characterisation of nanomaterials for medical applications.

Research areas:

Computational statistics.
