I started as a post-doc in bioinformatics on August 2019 and I am in the process of looking for interesting research topics within drug safety for pregnant women, and the role of genetics and epigenetics.
My background is within mathematics and informatics. I was previously involved in cardiological research at St. Thomas Hospital UK and Rikshospitalet Oslo, and have worked with biophysical modelling and sudden cardiac arrest prediction.
