  • Post doc; PhD

Research interests

In my postdoc, I am exploring the interactions between genetic and environmental risk factors for juvenile idiopathic arthritis. My background is in molecular biology and genetic epidemiology, and I have a strong interest in immunology, epigenetics and bioinformatics.
